Set the spawn-pgroup attribute of a spawn attributes object
#include <spawn.h> int posix_spawnattr_setpgroup( posix_spawnattr_t *attrp, pid_t pid);
- A pointer to the spawn attributes object that you want to modify.
- The process group to be joined by the new process image in a spawn operation. The child process's group if you specify POSIX_SPAWN_SETGROUP in the flags member.
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
The posix_spawnattr_setpgroup() function sets the process group attribute in the spawn attributes object pointed to by attr. You must have already initialized the spawn attributes object by calling posix_spawnattr_init() .
This attribute represents the process group to be joined by the new process image in a spawn operation if POSIX_SPAWN_SETPGROUP is set in the spawn flags; to set this flag, call the POSIX function posix_spawnattr_setflags() , or the QNX Neutrino function posix_spawnattr_setxflags() . The default value of the process group attribute is zero. The default value of the process group attribute is zero. You can use posix_spawnattr_getpgroup() . to retrieve it.
