  In order for the following to work (at least within the
environment) you need to start QB with "/l" to load qb.qlb.
 Be careful to save your source because this will
immediately exit the environment too!

  DECLARE SUB ErrorExit ALIAS "_exit" (BYVAL ErrorLevel%)
  ErrorExit 20

  Keith Rolland posted another way to exit with an errorlevel awhile back
that was interesting.  If you want, I'll dig it up.
