Does mysqldump return a status?

I am creating a script that backups a mysql db using the mysqldump utility. I am writing this script in the shell "sh" and plan to run this on a SuSE linux machine. I would like to capture the output status of mysqldump in the script (i.e. if the mysqldump command failed or succeeded) so I can report if the script was successful or not. Does mysqldump return an output status? Can someone please give me instructions on how to do this?

I have checked the MySQL documentation, but could not find anything that describes how to do this.

Thanks in advance.
