Waiting for processes to finish under Solaris
 
Hi all,

please note that once I finished writing the script someone explained me
that there is a command pwait under Solaris... anyway it was fun to
write and it did not take long (while I am not a python guru..). And my
version is MUUUCH better :)


Is there no standard interfaces to the process table? I only found
examples of how to do it on the win32 platform. So I parse with re the
output of /usr/ucb/ps...

Because I am still at the begining of learning python, I wanted to have
some advice here how I could have done the following code better...

Thanks in advance, Ben.

def usage():
print >>sys.stderr, sys.argv[0] + " Usage"

finished

<regexp> at their beginning
-p <pid> | --pid=<pid> will watch the processes with the pid
<pid>

try:
opts, args = getopt.getopt(sys.argv[1:], "hr:p:", ["help", "regexp=",
"pid="])

regexps.append(re.compile('^' + a))

print

time.sleep(58)

Re: Waiting for processes to finish under Solaris
 
Wow.. that is a pretty nice shortcut indeed.. at least for the second
step of waiting for the process to end by itself!

It is also a very underdocumented feature.. :)) signal.SIG_DFL (0) is
documented as """SIG_DFL
This is one of two standard signal handling options; it will simply
perform the default function for the signal. For example, on most
systems the default action for SIGQUIT is to dump core and exit, while
the default action for SIGCLD is to simply ignore it. """
Hopefully it will NOT SIGQUIT it...
I can only test it tomorrow but if it works it will certainly give it a
performance boost. If it does not maybe some other signal is completed
ignored...
Pity I will have to probably run the watch script as the same user than
the process. I guess I will not be able to kill it otherwise.

Could you maybe find anything where you would say, could be done a
little more pythonic? :)

Thanks.
Ben.
