Members

Name Description
G_SPAWN_DEFAULT

No flags, default behaviour.

G_SPAWN_LEAVE_DESCRIPTORS_OPEN

The parent’s open file descriptors will be inherited by the child; otherwise all descriptors except stdin, stdout and stderr will be closed before calling exec() in the child.

G_SPAWN_DO_NOT_REAP_CHILD

The child will not be automatically reaped; you must use g_child_watch_add() yourself (or call waitpid() or handle SIGCHLD yourself), or the child will become a zombie.

G_SPAWN_SEARCH_PATH

argv[0] need not be an absolute path, it will be looked for in the user’s PATH.

G_SPAWN_STDOUT_TO_DEV_NULL

The child’s standard output will be discarded, instead of going to the same location as the parent’s standard output.

G_SPAWN_STDERR_TO_DEV_NULL

The child’s standard error will be discarded.

G_SPAWN_CHILD_INHERITS_STDIN

The child will inherit the parent’s standard input (by default, the child’s standard input is attached to /dev/null).

G_SPAWN_FILE_AND_ARGV_ZERO

The first element of argv is the file to execute, while the remaining elements are the actual argument vector to pass to the file. Normally g_spawn_async_with_pipes() uses argv[0] as the file to execute, and passes all of argv to the child.

G_SPAWN_SEARCH_PATH_FROM_ENVP

If argv[0] is not an absolute path, it will be looked for in the PATH from the passed child environment. Since: 2.34

G_SPAWN_CLOEXEC_PIPES

Create all pipes with the O_CLOEXEC flag set. Since: 2.40
