Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.30nb1, Package name: p5-Proc-Background-1.30nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The Perl 5 module Proc::Background provides a generic interface for
placing processes in the background on both Unix and Win32 platforms.
Background processes can be started, killed, waited upon, checked
for existence and their exit values can be retrieved.

Log message:
*: recursive bump for perl 5.36
   2021-11-07 01:59:13 by Wen Heping | Files touched by this commit (2)
Log message:
Update to 1.30

Upstream changes:
Version 1.30

  * New options 'command','exe' dis-ambiguate the problems around
    determining how to parse the command line and determine the
    executable name.  It also allows faking argv[0].  They can be
    inspected after program launch via same-named attributes.
  * New options 'stdin','stdout','stderr' allow initializing handles
    of the child process.
  * New option 'cwd' sets initial current directory of the child
  * Renamed '->die' to '->terminate' and options 'die_upon_destroy'
    to 'autoterminate' (but preserved back-compat)
  * Option 'autoterminate' now has an attribute accessor and can be
    toggled on the fly.
  * New option 'autodie' throws exceptions from constructor instead
    of returning undef.
  * On Unix, use a pipe to capture error messages all the way through
    to the exec() call.  Reap exec() failures without exposing the
    forked process to the user.
  * Add methods ->suspend and ->resume
  * Mitigate bug in timeout_system where a system clock change could
    increase the wait-time indefinitely.

Log message:
Update to 1.22

Upstream changes:
Version 1.22

  * Fix bug in timeout of $p->wait on Unix perl earlier than 5.12
    where Time::HiRes::alarm was failing to set the alarm.
  * Fix test case 47 (which was failing on about 5% of systems)
    by waiting longer for the process to exit

  Version 1.21
  * Fix bug in timeout_system that caused it to wait the maximum
    duration on every call.

Sun Nov  3 19:34:00 EST 2019
  Version 1.20

  * More correct parsing of Win32 arguments to determine
    executable name, and more correct quoting when building
    command line when starting from an argv.
  * More correct use of Unix signals during ->die, but also give
    user the ability to specify a custom sequence of signals.
  * Emulate Unix exit status of SIGKILL on Win32 when process was
    ended using $proc->Kill
  * New attributes ->exit_code and ->exit_signal help inspect the
    wstat value returned by ->wait.
  * Fix Win32 path separator used when searching %PATH% for exe
  * Don't leak changes to $? when calling ->die() during DESTROY
  * Make sure all die_upon_destroy happens before global destruction
  * Re-tooled with Dist::Zilla for modern generation of MYMETA and
    automatic version, license, etc.
