If you happen to use popen don't forget to use pclose ... I just spent hours trying to figure out why my oh /not/ so elegantly written code was leaving defunct processes all over the place.

So here's how to do it correctly.

import std.sting;
import std.stream;

extern (C) FILE * popen(char *,char *) ;

int main ()  {
char [] cmd = "ps -A";
FILE * PH;
IN = popen(cmd,"r");
char [] line, tmp_line;
if (!IN) {
//fav error message here
} else {
// read from results
while (fgets(line_tmp,line_tmp.sizeof,IN) ) {
line ~= std.string.chomp(line_tmp);
}
}

if (pclose(IN)!=0 ) {
// error msg here
}
return 0;
}

Hello,

i try to compile your programm, but i get some error message.

<code> import std.string; import std.stream; import std.c.stdio; import std.stdio;

extern (C) FILE* popen(char *,char *); extern (C) int pclose(FILE*);

int main() { char [] cmd = "ps -A"; FILE* IN; IN = popen(cmd,"r");

char [2500] tmp_line; char [] line; if (!IN) { // error message } else { // read from results //while (fgets(tmp_line,tmp_line.sizeof,IN) != null) { while (fgets(tmp_line,tmp_line.sizeof,IN) ) { line ~= std.string.chomp(tmp_line); writefln(line); } }

if ( pclose(IN) !=0 ) { // error message } return 0; }

</code>

I must insert the line "char [2500] tmp_line;" only with "char [] tmp_line" i get segmentaution fault This line too: extern (C) int pclose(FILE*);

My output is: PID TTY          TIME CMD Error: 4invalid UTF-8 sequence

:-(

My system is Debian stable and dmd 139 .

Many C-functions need a preallocated buffer to store the results.

The C-functions used here don't support Unicode. Convert the output to UTF or use printf instead.
