setting variable based on errorlevel under DOS

I have an issue where I need to set the value of a variable based on the errorlevel set by a command and access it in a makefile.

I am using the 3.81 beta compiled for DOS

I want to be able to test the exit status of a command like this

include gmsl

    address@hidden /t || if errorlevel 0 cmd /c "set status=1"
    $(if $(status),@echo failed,@echo success)

So that if myprogram fails I can set the value of status to 1 and then test $status later

Can this be done in this way or am I way off base. I am not a DOS expert so I am at a bit of a loss on how to do this

To iterate is human, to recurse divine.
