A negative return code generally means an error occurred. Negating retcode here is equivalent to abs(retcode), which shows you want a positive integer to appear in the message - it's not an error.

Could replace '-retcode' with 'abs(retcode)' to be more clear. Possibly also add a comment in the code example body to further clarify this.
