Bash: Find out the exit codes of all piped commands

Bash stores the exitcodestatus of piped commands in the environment variable PIPESTATUS

So you can just echo ${PIPESTATUS[@]} to get them all.

Copy
13:52:30 ✔ claus:~$ ps ax | grep /usr/bin/ruby 13205 pts/20 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto /usr/bin/ruby 13:52:43 ✔ claus:~$ echo ${PIPESTATUS[@]} 0 0

PIPESTATUS is an array, so you can get the exitcode of an specific command (first pipe):

Copy
13:54:20 ✔ claus:~$ echo ${PIPESTATUS[1]} 0
