NAME ^

Zoidberg::Contractor - Module to manage jobs

SYNOPSIS ^

        use Zoidberg::Contractor;
        my $c = Zoidberg::Contractor->new();
        
        $c->shell_list( [qw(cat ./log)], '|', [qw(grep -i error)] );

DESCRIPTION ^

Zoidberg inherits from this module, it manages jobs.

It uses Zoidberg::StringParser.

Also it defines Zoidberg::Job and subclasses.

FIXME lots of documentation

METHODS ^

new()

Simple constructor, calls shell_init().

shell_init()

Initialises things like hashes with signal names and sets terminal control. Should be called before usage when the constructor is overloaded.

round_up()

Recursively calls the round_up() function of all current jobs.

shell_list(@blocks)

Executes a list of jobs and logic operators.

shell_job($block)

Executes a single job.

reap_jobs()

Checks for jobs that are finished and removes them from the job list.

job_by_id($id)

Returns a job object based on the (numeric) id.

(Note that the job list is un-ordered, so the id and the index are not usually identical.)

job_by_spec($string)

Returns a job object based on a string. The following formats are supported:

%integer

Job with id integer

%+

Current job

%-

Previous job

%?string

Last job matching string

%string

Last job starting with string

sig_by_spec($string)

Returns the signal number for a named signal or undef if no such signal exists.

JOBS ^

Jobs are objects of the class Zoidberg::Job or a subclass of this class.

This object AUTOLOADS methods to process signals. For example:

  $job->TERM(); # is identical to
  $job->kill('TERM');

Methods

The job obbjects have the following methods:

new()

Simple constructor.

exec()

Execute the job.

round_up()

Recursively kill the job, ends all child processes forcefully.

fg()

Take terminal control and run this job in the foreground.

bg()

Run this job in the background.

kill($signal, $wipe_list)

Sends $signal (numeric or named) to all child processes belonging to this job; $signal defaults to SIGTERM.

If the boolean $wipe_list is set all jobs pending in the same logic list are removed.

env(\%env)

Set local environment for the current job. Can't be set after the job has started.

fd(\@redir)

Set redirections for the current job. Can't be set after the job has started.
