Condor folks,

Please if you could answer Kipp's question for the version of
DAGman that is in 6.6.7, which I will be installing tomorrow.

$RETURN is in 6.6.7, and it's been in DAGMan since before 6.6.1.

As Peter said, it's not passed as an environment variable, but it's a variable in the DAGMan file--substitution is done so that it can be given as an argument to the script.
