i have this code:

 rcfilepath =  "/etc/authdaemonrc"
 If Not Exist(rcfilepath) Then
        Error "rc file not found "

the following line returns no error if file cannot be read:

 Exec ["cat", rcfilepath] To sLine

just offers 0 lines.. using gambas 3.10 and 3.12 .. this is normal? using
"cat /path/file" returns error

*is there's a way to check if execution was susessfull¡?*
