I want t beable to use the batch file "ERRORLEVEL" based on the return value of my program.  

My program looks something like this:

int main(void)
{
  If (x == TRUE)
         return 1;
  else
         return 0;

return 0;
}

Based on that it should return the value. So when i call the command in my batch file:

@a:\mycprogram.exe
if errorlevel 0 goto Abort
if errorlevel 1 goto Next

As of now, it seems to not return a value, because I can use any errorlevel 1-??, and it will proceed.  If anyne can help I woul appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,
Rhobbs

The command errorlevel in Batch is kinda stupid.
When you write - "if errorlevel 0 goto Abort",
the real meaning of this is if error level bigger or equal to zero.
So, all you need to do is swap the two lines to this:

if errorlevel 1 goto Next
if errorlevel 0 goto Abort
0

I can't believe no one ever mentions this. I've been wondering for a while now why my statements aren't evaluating the way they look like they should.

Great answer
