pub fn spawn_check_exit_status(wait_status: i32) -> Result<(), Error>
Expand description

An old name for spawn_check_wait_status(), deprecated because its name is misleading.

Despite the name of the function, wait_status must be the wait status as returned by g_spawn_sync(), g_subprocess_get_status(), waitpid(), etc. On Unix platforms, it is incorrect for it to be the exit status as passed to exit() or returned by g_subprocess_get_exit_status() or WEXITSTATUS().

Deprecated since 2.70

Use spawn_check_wait_status() instead, and check whether your code is conflating wait and exit statuses.

wait_status

A status as returned from g_spawn_sync()

Returns

true if child exited successfully, false otherwise (and error will be set)
