  Ah, I'm sorry, I forgot to update the foreground documentation. My bad.

  Starting with execline-1.3.0, LASTEXITCODE has been changed to ?
and LASTPID to ! ; and the pipeline utility also sets ! .
  Documentation now updated.

  You can get the old behaviour by compiling with -DEXECLINE_OLD_VARNAMES,
but please do not rely on this for too long. (execline-2.0 is just around
the corner, and I may or may not remove support for old variables.)
