I am writing a short script that will install several packages and report if any fail. The problem I am having is that whether the install fails of succeeds I am getting "0" as a result. I am doing the follwing:
my $result = system("yum -y install NotA_real_package.hah-ha");
and $result comes back as "0" just as it does when I successfully install a package. I am using CentOS.
Any help would be greatly appreicated.
