Error code _from_ ANT

I am trying to execute an ANT build.xml file from within a PERL script. I would like the ANT process to return an error code if there is a problem somewhere in its execution.
I have tried "haltonerror" etc. But these error codes remain within the ANT process, and the process does not exit back to the outer PERL process.
Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks !
P.S: Just want to say hi, since I am new to this message board

I am having the same problem. I want to capture ant failures in the batch file or shell script I use to call ant.

Does ant expose the error code to the outer envirnoment?
I agree. Here's the link:
