GioSubprocessFlags

Declaration

flags Gio.SubprocessFlags

Description [src]

Flags to define the behaviour of a GSubprocess.

Note that the default for stdin is to redirect from /dev/null. For stdout and stderr the default are for them to inherit the corresponding descriptor from the calling process.

Note that it is a programmer error to mix ‘incompatible’ flags. For example, you may not request both G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDOUT_PIPE and G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDOUT_SILENCE.

Available since:2.40

Members

Name Description
G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_NONE

No flags.

G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDIN_PIPE

Create a pipe for the stdin of the spawned process that can be accessed with g_subprocess_get_stdin_pipe().

G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDIN_INHERIT

Stdin is inherited from the calling process.

G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDOUT_PIPE

Create a pipe for the stdout of the spawned process that can be accessed with g_subprocess_get_stdout_pipe().

G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDOUT_SILENCE

Silence the stdout of the spawned process (ie: redirect to /dev/null).

G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDERR_PIPE

Create a pipe for the stderr of the spawned process that can be accessed with g_subprocess_get_stderr_pipe().

G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDERR_SILENCE

Silence the stderr of the spawned process (ie: redirect to /dev/null).

G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_STDERR_MERGE

Merge the stderr of the spawned process with whatever the stdout happens to be. This is a good way of directing both streams to a common log file, for example.

G_SUBPROCESS_FLAGS_INHERIT_FDS

Spawned processes will inherit the file descriptors of their parent, unless those descriptors have been explicitly marked as close-on-exec. This flag has no effect over the “standard” file descriptors (stdin, stdout, stderr).
