how to get exit codes of svn commands

Hi. I'm making a windows script (jscript) so we can automate backups
of our subversion repository. In the process, I'm putting in checks to
validate arguments being passed. One of the checks I want to make is
if the path provided is in fact a repository.

To do this, I would like to issue the following command

svnlook uuid <path>

From this, I wanted to get the exit code of svnlook to be able to tell
if the given path is a valid repository or not. Given a valid path and
a bogus path (but exists in the directory), the exit codes are both
'0' {zero}.

What is the right way of doing this?

Appreciate any thoughts on this.
