Exit codes

When the command line console closes it issues a standard exit code that you can use to control further batch processing if you are integrating Help+Manual output in your automated build process.

Note that a log file is not generated automatically, even if errors occur and the console will normally close automatically after the process finishes.

If you want to create a log you must explicitly specify this with the /L=<logfile> switch in your command line. Log files are not generated automatically.

If you want to be able to read the console messages you must include a pause instruction at the end of your batch file to keep the console window open. (This is only possible with a batch file, not with direct entry in the command line console.)
