gpg return value problem

Thanks a lot for the response.
Since I am using perl I tried the following...
gpg --recipient "XXX" --output bla-bla-bla
When there is an error, it prints 512. When the
encryption is successful it prints 0. That's great. I
was trying to find out more documentation about error
codes. But couldn't find anything.
I intentionally mis-spelled receipient or output or
recipient name but always got 512 error code. I was
assuming I will get different error codes. Is this the
correct behaviour or am I missing something?
Can someone please explain? Thanks a lot in advance.
