Summary 0001500: expr EXIT STATUS needs some changes
Description The expr utility has a similar problem to the one reported for diff in bug 0001498.

In addition, exit status 2 should say that it is an error (so that a diagnostic message is required).
Desired Action Change:
0 The expression evaluates to neither null nor zero.

1 The expression evaluates to null or zero.

2 Invalid expression.

>2 An error occurred.
to:
0 The expression evaluated to neither null nor zero, and the output specified in STDOUT was successfully written to standard output.

1 The expression evaluated to null or zero, and the output specified in STDOUT was successfully written to standard output.

2 Invalid expression error.

>2 Another error occurred.

Tags No tags attached.
