First my design:
I have a process "abc" which creates & starts a child process "xyz" depending on some commands received. Now, let's say "abc" creates 3 "xyz" processes one after another. Now the design is each time "abc" starts up, it needs to check whether any of the processes it has started earlier has already exited or not, so that it can reuse the slot in some process table
In linux, this checking at start up can be done by calling kill(pid, 0) which sends a signal to the process (as given by pid) and decides whether process has exited or not
Now the question, in symbian, how will this check of whether the process has already exited be done?
I saw RProcess:Logon but am not sure how it works and I guess it does not fill the bill here as I cannot wait for the child process to be completed
Any one has idea/solution?
Thanks in advance
