to pick up the Return Code ( RC) from the mailx command and return it to SAS uisng 's

Hi All,

Can anyone please let me know the syntax / how to pick up the Return Code ( RC) from the mailx command and return it to SAS uisng 'system()' function and '${?}'.

I am in a process to send the mail automatically with an attachment to bulk users. I have used 'Mailx' and 'Unencode' commands for the same and those worked fine. Please find below the same.

X " ( cat /sastemp/body.txt; uuencode test.xls test.xls ) | mailx -s 'testing' 'abcd.gef@yahoo.com' "

Instead using the X command I want to use system() function & ${} to make the above more successful.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your time,
Manas
