 * 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
 * mingw to develop the spawned program, it will have to call the
 * undocumented function __wgetmainargs() to get the wide character
 * argument vector and environment. See gspawn-win32-helper.c in the
 * GLib sources or init.c in the mingw runtime sources for a prototype
 * for that function. Alternatively, you can retrieve the Win32 system

 *
 * On Windows the low-level child process creation API
 * <function>CreateProcess()</function> doesn't use argument vectors,
514 515 516
 * but a command line. The C runtime library's
 * <function>spawn*()</function> 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
518
 * does a corresponding reconstruction of an argument vector from the
519
 * command line, to be passed to main(). Complications arise when you have
520
 * argument vector elements that contain spaces of double quotes. The
521
 * <function>spawn*()</function> functions don't do any quoting or
522 523 524 525 526
 * 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
527
 * spawn() function.

 * @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().

 * 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()
703 704 705
 * parsing @command_line. Parsing is done according to Unix shell rules, not 
 * Windows command interpreter rules.
 * Space is a separator, and backslashes are
706 707 708 709 710
 * 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.
 * On Unix, this is guaranteed to be in the same format
 * <literal>waitpid(2)</literal> returns, and on Windows it is
 * guaranteed to be the result of
 * <literal>GetExitCodeProcess()</literal>.  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.
 *
 * Additionally, many programs simply want to determine whether or not
 * the child exited successfully, and either propagate a #GError or
 * 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.
 *
 * The <literal>domain</literal> and <literal>code</literal> 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 <literal>WIFEXITED</literal> would be true of
 * @exit_status.  On Windows, it is always the case.
 *
 * 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
 * <literal>WIFEXITED()</literal> and <literal>WEXITSTATUS()</literal>
 * 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)
 * Since: 2.34
