Module documentation for 1.6.9.0

This version can be pinned in stack with:process-1.6.9.0@sha256:0cafe6e1313790863bd81cf40563baf5feea9ca2957e79a4d92bacfcc455604a,2468

This package contains libraries for dealing with system processes.

The typed-process package is a more recent take on a process API, which uses this package internally. It features better binary support, easier concurrency, and a more composable API. You can read more about it at https://github.com/fpco/typed-process/#readme.

Changes

Changelog for process package

1.6.9 May 2020

  • Windows: Fix buffer size of QueryInformationJobObject request #176

1.6.8.2 March 2020

  • Fix another process wait bug on Windows.

1.6.8.1 March 2020

  • Fix a few warnings on Windows.

1.6.6.0 October 2019

  • Fix a potential privilege escalation issue (or, more precisely, privileges not being dropped when this was the user’s intent) where the groups of the spawning process’s user would be incorrectly retained due to a missing call to initgroups [#149].

  • Expose runInteractiveProcess_lock in System.Process.Internals #154

1.6.5.1 June 2019

  • Version bound bumps
  • Slightly nicer error messages for internal errors
