[p4] Triggers not working for me.

In saying:
   "For a trigger to "work" it needs to exit with non zero status"
You are really saying that if you want the submit to fail, correct?
The trigger *could* be satisfied that some criteria was met and 
return a zero status, to allow the submit to proceed.
Thank you!

For a trigger to "work" it needs to exit with non zero status (and
preferably put some text to standard out). Your echo is exiting with zero
status so the trigger doesn't "fire" or have any effect on the submit. Try
the following:

robert:/usr/home/robert/temp$ p4 triggers -o
# See 'p4 help triggers' for more information about triggers.
        something //... "/bin/echo 'hello world'; /bin/badcommand"
Then when I do a submit:
sh: /bin/badcommand: No such file or directory
Change 2 created with 2 open file(s).
Submitting change 2.
Locking 2 files ...
Submit validation failed -- fix problems then use 'p4 submit -c 2'.
Submit check 'something' failed: hello world

/bin/badcommand is a non existent command which produces a non zero error.

After trying various permutations of a script, I have whittled my trigger
down to the following: 

        whatswrong      //depot/...     "/bin/echo 'Hello World!'" 

But that doesn't work either after doing a "p4 submit".  Am I missing
p4d is running on a Solaris 8 box.
