An Autonomous Child Process
First, allow me to apologize in advance, in case this question has already appeared.
My problem consists of the following:
I am trying to create an application that has to launch another executable without depending on it's actions. That is, that from the moment it's called, it has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the main file.
I've tried "forking" it, "exec"s in all their variants, but the results are disappointing...
Here's a more 'graphic' description of what I am hoping to get:
Thank you for your attention,
// This is the main program...
exec//or whatever it should be, is summoned
//Running continues(of the "main"), without holding or pausing, with the other Executable working in the background...
Unfortunately I didn't quite follow you there...
Above all, let me thank you for the rapid responses.
I regret to say however, that I wasn't able to successfully implement what you had suggested.
I mean, I've already attempted to "fork" then "exec", but in vain.
I was hoping that, should this not burden you too heavily, to place a snippet as an example, supposing that the two executables are "a.o", and "b.o"...
