'spawnw' return value: make it OS-independent
|Reported by:||jkeenan||Owned by:|
This ticket formerly existed as RT #36619. It was entered into RT by particle on 21 Jul 2005. I am moving it to Trac at the suggestion of whiteknight on his blog, which is also available on planet.parrotcode (July 17).
Original ticket description:
the return value from 'spawnw' is highly system dependent as currently implemented. instead, 'spawnw' should return something object-like, that wraps the platform-specific semantics.
Here are some files in our distribution that will be relevant to working on this ticket:
