the array is passed to the block as block parameters, and the
function itself returns nil.
- While the process spawned by this function is active, SIGCHLD
- is captured to handle the change of the child process. When the
- child process is suspended or finished, an exception is raised.
- As all SIGCHLD signal is captured and processed by PTY module,
- you can't use other function or method which spawns subprosesses
- (including signal() and IO.popen()) while the PTY subprocesses
- are active. Otherwise, unexpected exception will occur. To avoid
- this problem, see protect_signal() below.
- If this function is called with an iterator block, SIGCHLD signal
- is captured only within the block. Therefore, it is risky to use
- File objects for PTY subprocess outside the iterator block.
+ When the child process is suspended or finished, an exception is
+ raised. If this function is called with an iterator block,
+ exception is raised only within the block. Child process
+ monitor is terminated on block exit.
- This function takes an iterator block. Within the iterator block,
- no exception is raised even if any subprocess is terminated.
- This function is used to enable functions like system() or IO.popen()
- while PTY subprocess is active. For example,
- PTY.spawn("command_foo") do |r,w|
- PTY.protect_signal do
- system "some other commands"
- disables to send exception when "some other commands" is
- Disables to handle SIGCHLD while PTY subprocess is active.
+ These functions are obsolete in this version of pty.
