Hi :)

Does anyone know of a way to set the value of $? ?

I have a test which stubs ` ; the call works fine, but then the library 
I am testing checks the value of $? to see if the process terminated 
It seems not to be possible to assign $? directly...

For now I do this before my test :
`ls > /dev/null`
Which ensure that $? is zero ; but this is not a very nice way of doing 
it ! If anyone here has a good trick for this, it will be very welcome :)
