Topic: Command Line return values with v1.5.4 - BUG? (Read 757 times) previous topic - next topic


The documentation for the command line as per https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/wiki/Arduino-IDE-1.5-from-command-line says a successful return from the command line invocation should be zero. 1 and 2 represent failures.

My investigations indicate that zero is not returned but rather 259 is for success!!! Is this a bug?


It also appears that the return code is generated before the Arduino IDE (which is invoked to perform this) has actually completed... hmmm


Under Windows arduino.exe exits with ErrorLevel 0 or 259 before compilation begins (but IDE runs at background)

ErrorLevel = 259

START /WAIT arduino.exe
ErrorLevel = 259

START arduino.exe
ErrorLevel = 0

This behavior is not very convenient for batch processing commands :-(
