I have a script that forks some child process! When the child finish
exit with exit($i) function. The problem is that from the parent i can't
see the return value $i of the process! I use the pcntl_waitpid($ status)
and pcntl_wifexited ($status) but the status returned is always 1. How
can the parent process see if the child has exit? Thanks

I have no idea what you are doing really, but I think 'return()' might be
more useful to you than 'exit()'.
