AG_EXECUTE(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		 AG_EXECUTE(3)

NAME
     AG_Execute	-- agar	file execution interface

SYNOPSIS
     #include <agar/core.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The AG_Execute() function provides	a cross-platform interface for execut-
     ing external applications.

INTERFACE
     AG_ProcessID AG_Execute(const char	*file, char **argv)

     AG_ProcessID AG_WaitOnProcess(AG_ProcessID	pid, enum ag_exec_wait_type
     wait_type)

     int AG_Kill(AG_ProcessID pid)

     The AG_Execute() function executes	the specified file with	the given ar-
     guments, returning	an integer process ID.	If an error occured, the func-
     tion returns -1 and sets an error message accordingly.

     AG_WaitOnProcess()	checks for status or waits until the specified process
     terminates.  The wait_type	argument may be	one of:

     AG_EXEC_WAIT_IMMEDIATE   If the process has not exited, return immedi-
			      ately without blocking.

     AG_EXEC_WAIT_INFINITE    Block the	calling	thread until the process has
			      exited.

     The function returns the PID of the terminated process, -1	if an error
     occured, or 0 if wait_type	is AG_EXEC_WAIT_IMMEDIATE and the process is
     still running.

     The AG_Kill() function immediately	terminates the specified process.
