mbkwaitpid provides a centralized way to catch terminated child process. Because some Alliance library can create a child process, and user application can do so, there must be a centralized way to get the exit status of process. The programmer should never modify the handler for SIGCHLD.
mbkwaitpid return 1 if child process is terminated, and 0 if isn't (case mode != 1 ).
This tool is under development at the ASIM department of
the LIP6 laboratory.
We need your feedback to improve documentation and tools.
