 * All output from the child is stored in @standard_output and @standard_error,

 * passing %NULL for @standard_output and @standard_error.
223 224

 * Note that it is invalid to pass %G_SPAWN_DO_NOT_REAP_CHILD in

 * At least currently, mingw doesn't support wmain(), so if you use

 * On Windows the low-level child process creation API CreateProcess()
 * doesn't use argument vectors, but a command line. The C runtime
 * library's spawn*() family of functions (which g_spawn_async_with_pipes()
 * eventually calls) paste the argument vector elements together into
 * a command line, and the C runtime startup code does a corresponding
 * reconstruction of an argument vector from the command line, to be
 * passed to main(). Complications arise when you have argument vector
 * elements that contain spaces of double quotes. The spawn*() functions
 * don't do any quoting or escaping, but on the other hand the startup
 * code does do unquoting and unescaping in order to enable receiving
 * arguments with embedded spaces or double quotes. To work around this
 * asymmetry, g_spawn_async_with_pipes() will do quoting and escaping on
 * argument vector elements that need it before calling the C runtime
522
 * spawn() function.

 * @flags should be the bitwise OR of any flags you want to affect the

 * be notified about the death of the child process. Eventually you must
 * call g_spawn_close_pid() on the @child_pid, in order to free
 * resources which may be associated with the child process. (On Unix,
 * using a child watch is equivalent to calling waitpid() or handling
540
 * the %SIGCHLD signal manually. On Windows, calling g_spawn_close_pid()
541

 * On Windows, there is no separate fork() and exec() functionality.

 * @error: return location for errors
 *
 * A simple version of g_spawn_sync() with little-used parameters
 * removed, taking a command line instead of an argument vector.  See
 * g_spawn_sync() for full details. @command_line will be parsed by
 * g_shell_parse_argv(). Unlike g_spawn_sync(), the %G_SPAWN_SEARCH_PATH flag
 * is enabled. Note that %G_SPAWN_SEARCH_PATH can have security
 * implications, so consider using g_spawn_sync() directly if
 * appropriate. Possible errors are those from g_spawn_sync() and those
 * from g_shell_parse_argv().

689 690 691
 * If @exit_status is non-%NULL, the platform-specific exit status of
 * the child is stored there; see the documentation of
 * g_spawn_check_exit_status() for how to use and interpret this.

 * On Windows, please note the implications of g_shell_parse_argv()
694 695 696
 * parsing @command_line. Parsing is done according to Unix shell rules, not 
 * Windows command interpreter rules.
 * Space is a separator, and backslashes are
697 698 699 700 701
 * special. Thus you cannot simply pass a @command_line containing
 * canonical Windows paths, like "c:\\program files\\app\\app.exe", as
 * the backslashes will be eaten, and the space will act as a
 * separator. You need to enclose such paths with single quotes, like
 * "'c:\\program files\\app\\app.exe' 'e:\\folder\\argument.txt'".

/**
 * g_spawn_check_exit_status:
 * @exit_status: An exit code as returned from g_spawn_sync()
 * @error: a #GError
 *
 * Set @error if @exit_status indicates the child exited abnormally
 * (e.g. with a nonzero exit code, or via a fatal signal).
 *
 * The g_spawn_sync() and g_child_watch_add() family of APIs return an
 * exit status for subprocesses encoded in a platform-specific way.
791 792 793 794 795 796
 * On Unix, this is guaranteed to be in the same format waitpid() returns,
 * and on Windows it is guaranteed to be the result of GetExitCodeProcess().
 *
 * Prior to the introduction of this function in GLib 2.34, interpreting
 * @exit_status required use of platform-specific APIs, which is problematic
 * for software using GLib as a cross-platform layer.
797 798 799
 *
 * Additionally, many programs simply want to determine whether or not
 * the child exited successfully, and either propagate a #GError or
800 801 802
 * print a message to standard error. In that common case, this function
 * can be used. Note that the error message in @error will contain
 * human-readable information about the exit status.
803
 *
804 805 806 807
 * The @domain and @code of @error have special semantics in the case
 * where the process has an "exit code", as opposed to being killed by
 * a signal. On Unix, this happens if WIFEXITED() would be true of
 * @exit_status. On Windows, it is always the case.
808 809 810 811 812 813 814 815 816 817 818
 *
 * The special semantics are that the actual exit code will be the
 * code set in @error, and the domain will be %G_SPAWN_EXIT_ERROR.
 * This allows you to differentiate between different exit codes.
 *
 * If the process was terminated by some means other than an exit
 * status, the domain will be %G_SPAWN_ERROR, and the code will be
 * %G_SPAWN_ERROR_FAILED.
 *
 * This function just offers convenience; you can of course also check
 * the available platform via a macro such as %G_OS_UNIX, and use
819 820 821 822 823 824
 * WIFEXITED() and WEXITSTATUS() on @exit_status directly. Do not attempt
 * to scan or parse the error message string; it may be translated and/or
 * change in future versions of GLib.
 *
 * Returns: %TRUE if child exited successfully, %FALSE otherwise (and
 *     @error will be set)
