Overview

EM::DeferrableChildProcess is a sugaring of a common use-case involving EM::popen. Call the #open method on EM::DeferrableChildProcess, passing a command-string. #open immediately returns an EM::Deferrable object. It also schedules the forking of a child process, which will execute the command passed to #open. When the forked child terminates, the Deferrable will be signalled and execute its callbacks, passing the data that the child process wrote to stdout.

Class Method Details

+ (Object) open(cmd)

Sugars a common use-case involving forked child processes.

open takes a String argument containing an shell command

string (including arguments if desired). #open immediately returns an EventMachine::Deferrable object, without blocking.

It also invokes EventMachine#popen to run the passed-in command in a forked child process.

When the forked child terminates, the Deferrable that

open calls its callbacks, passing the data returned

from the child process.
