/var/cron/log Return Codes

I want to know if there is any documentation or any type of information that can give a list of all of the return codes that can be seen in the /var/cron/log. I have seen a couple in my log file. Example: rc=1 and rc=64.

These are the standard Solaris error codes, not sure if cron has its own list like patchadd does...

Code:

The exit code of a process is not the same as a error number found in errno.

Returns codes from programs are program specific and should be documented in the relevant manpage for that program. For example grep returns 0, 1 or 2.
