5.27 Processes

When running on a Unix-style operating system Librep allows you to launch and control an arbitrary number of subprocesses. These subprocesses can run either synchronously or asynchronously in respect to the Lisp system; data can be sent to the stdin channel and any output from the process is automatically written to a specified Lisp output stream.

Unless otherwise stated, all functions and variables described in the following sections are exported by the rep.io.processes module.
