Decoding process exit status?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a process that is dying and looking at the acoount shows a exit code of
 10038004.  Exit%x does not translate it.  What does it mean? Here is the
 complete accounting record.

The Answer is :

  The value seen is whatever happens to be in register R0 when the image
  exits.  (This value happens to look like random garbage.)
