AW: [Mono-list] Windows: Propagating exit codes in .bat files?

Please pay attention: in Win98, there is no /b parameter available.
A line as EXIT %ERRORLEVEL% exits, but I cannot say if it only exits the =
batch or the COMMAND.COM (that is the intended usage for the /B =
parameter in CMD.EXE)

In Win95, the EXIT command might be missing. I haven't tested, but I =
cannot remember to have seen it.

Another chance for Win9x systems would be to provide .COM files instead =
of .BAT files. But this would need some knowledge on building .COM files =
I haven't got.
