Module std::process1.0.0 [] [src]

A module for working with processes.

Examples

Basic usage where we try to execute the cat shell command:

use std::process::Command;

let mut child = Command::new("/bin/cat")
                        .arg("file.txt")
                        .spawn()
                        .expect("failed to execute child");

let ecode = child.wait()
                 .expect("failed to wait on child");

assert!(ecode.success());Run
