Question ash script (please)

I know i know... why ash and not bash...
I have my reasons.

Can anyone tell me how to do a simple equate like...

if ./dosfsck == 1 then
echo Blah blah


case ./dosfsck in
0) Uhhm...
1) DoThis
2) DoThat

The only thing i've been able to do is a boolean check...

if ./dosfsck then

How can I check the return value more exact?????

$? contains the return value of the last command which is run. That's the way bash does it and I just tested it in ash and it seems to work too.



case $? in
0) echo 'zero';;
1) echo 'one';;
2) echo 'two';;
