data ProcessHandle Source
data ProcessHandle__ Source
A handle to a process, which can be used to wait for termination of the process using
None of the process-creation functions in this library wait for termination: they all return a
ProcessHandle which may be used to wait for the process later.

closePHANDLE :: PHANDLE -> IO () Source
mkProcessHandle :: PHANDLE -> Bool -> IO ProcessHandle Source
modifyProcessHandle :: ProcessHandle -> (ProcessHandle__ -> IO (ProcessHandle__, a)) -> IO a Source
withProcessHandle :: ProcessHandle -> (ProcessHandle__ -> IO a) -> IO a Source
data CreateProcess Source
cmdspec :: CmdSpec
Executable & arguments, or shell command
cwd :: Maybe FilePath
Optional path to the working directory for the new process
env :: Maybe [(String, String)]
Optional environment (otherwise inherit from the current process)
std_in :: StdStream
How to determine stdin
std_out :: StdStream
How to determine stdout
std_err :: StdStream
How to determine stderr
close_fds :: Bool
Close all file descriptors except stdin, stdout and stderr in the new process (on Windows, only works if std_in, std_out, and std_err are all Inherit)
create_group :: Bool
Create a new process group
delegate_ctlc :: Bool
Delegate control-C handling. Use this for interactive console processes to let them handle control-C themselves (see below for details).
On Windows this has no effect.
data CmdSpec Source
A command line to execute using the shell
RawCommand FilePath [String]
The name of an executable with a list of arguments
FilePath argument names the executable, and is interpreted according to the platform's standard policy for searching for executables. Specifically:
- on Unix systems the execvp(3) semantics is used, where if the executable filename does not contain a slash (
/) then the
PATH environment variable is searched for the executable.
- on Windows systems the Win32
CreateProcess semantics is used. Briefly: if the filename does not contain a path, then the directory containing the parent executable is searched, followed by the current directory, then some standard locations, and finally the current
.exe extension is added if the filename does not already have an extension. For full details see the documentation for the Windows
data StdStream Source
Inherit Handle from parent
Use the supplied Handle
Create a new pipe. The returned
Handle will use the default encoding and newline translation mode (just like
Handles created by
This function is almost identical to
createProcess. The only differences are:
Handles provided via
UseHandle are not closed automatically.
- This function takes an extra
String argument to be used in creating error messages.
This function has been available from the System.Process.Internals module for some time, and is part of the System.Process module since version 220.127.116.11.
Deprecated: Please do not use this anymore, use the ordinary
createProcess. If you need the SIGINT handling, use delegate_ctlc = True (runGenProcess_ is now just an imperfectly emulated stub that probably duplicates or overrides your own signal handling).

withCEnvironment :: [(String, String)] -> (Ptr CString -> IO a) -> IO a Source
translate :: String -> String Source
fdToHandle :: FD -> IO Handle Source
Turn an existing file descriptor into a Handle. This is used by various external libraries to make Handles.
Makes a binary Handle. This is for historical reasons; it should probably be a text Handle with the default encoding and newline translation instead.
