_pclose

Waits for a new command processor and closes the stream on the associated pipe.

int _pclose(
   FILE *stream 
);

stream

Return value from the previous call to _popen.

Returns the exit status of the terminating command processor, or –1 if an error occurs. The format of the return value is the same as that for _cwait, except the low-order and high-order bytes are swapped. If stream is NULL, _pclose sets errno to EINVAL and returns -1.

For information about these and other error codes, see _doserrno, errno, _sys_errlist, and _sys_nerr.

The _pclose function looks up the process ID of the command processor (Cmd.exe) started by the associated _popen call, executes a _cwait call on the new command processor, and closes the stream on the associated pipe.
