Close a pipe
#include <stdio.h> int pclose( FILE* stream );
- The stream pointer for the pipe that you want to close, that you obtained by calling popen() .
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
This function is in libc.a, but not in libc.so (in order to save space).
The pclose() function closes the pipe associated with stream, and waits for the subprocess created by popen() to terminate.
The termination status of the command language interpreter, or -1 if an error occurred ( errno is set).
- The pclose() function was interrupted by a signal while waiting for the child process to terminate.
- The pclose() function was unable to obtain the termination status of the child process.
