[erlang-questions] Stopping spawned process
Sun Nov 29 15:31:15 CET 2009
I checked what happens with other languages. In Python the behavior is
similar to in Erlang, when I use subprocess.Popen: the child process
stays alive when the Python process terminates. In Java, however, the
child process is killed. Probably a list of child processes is
maintained, and the children are sent a kill signal when the JVM is
killed. In Erlang I do not get direct access to the PID of the child,
neither do I get the opportunity to do anything when Erlang terminates
(or do I?).
Another process watcher would be a bit heavy for my purpose: a wrapper
around mplayer, as a client to a DVB-S media server.
