STATUS

System Testing Supervisor Script Language.

Purpose

STATUS is an integer operator that retrieves the code returned by a remote process when it terminates.

Syntax

STATUS ( process )

where:

Description

The execution of a STATUS expression does not block execution of the scenario.

Applying STATUS to an ongoing process always returns a zero value. We recommend you use the STATUS operator in conjunction with ENDOF.

Note   If you place an EXECUTE or DO instruction inside a WHILE loop, the process identifier denotes a group of processes. In this case, a STATUS expression returns a binary result or code from all the processes in the group. For example, if ten processes terminate with a return code of 0 and one process terminates with the return code of 1, the STATUS operator returns the value 1.

Example

EXECUTE proc_1 IS machine:foo0098

WHILE !ENDOF(proc_1)

PAUSE 1

END WHILE

j = STATUS ( proc_1 )

IF j != 0 THEN

  PRINT "incorrect termination of program -> "

  PRINTLN j

  EXIT

END IF
