* SECTION:spawn
* @Short_description: process launching
* @Title: Spawning Processes
* GLib supports spawning of processes with an API that is more
* convenient than the bare UNIX fork() and exec().
* The g_spawn family of functions has synchronous (g_spawn_sync())
* and asynchronous variants (g_spawn_async(), g_spawn_async_with_pipes()),
* as well as convenience variants that take a complete shell-like
* commandline (g_spawn_command_line_sync(), g_spawn_command_line_async()).
* See #GSubprocess in GIO for a higher-level API that provides
* stream interfaces for communication with child processes.
