NAME

AnyEvent::Subprocess::Easy - wrappers around AnyEvent::Subprocess to save typing in simple cases

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 1.102912

SYNOPSIS



    use AnyEvent::Subprocess::Easy qw(qx_nonblock);

    my $date = qx_nonblock(date)->recv;



DESCRIPTION

I was writing some examples and noticed some patterns that came up again and again, so I converted them to functions. These are opaque and non-customizeable, but might be helpful if you want to do something common without a lot of typing. If they don’t work quite the way you want, it is not too hard to use AnyEvent::Subprocess directly.

EXPORTS

We use Sub::Exporter here, so you can customize the exports as appropriate.

qx_nonblock( CW$cmdline | CW@cmdline )

qx_nonblock works like qx, except that it returns a condvar that you recv on to get the captured stdout. The recv will throw an exception if the process you run doesn’t exit cleanly.

You can pass in one string for the shell to interpret (like exec), or you can pass in a list of arguments (passed directly to exec). You can also pass in a coderef if you like; it will be called with an undefined number of arguments in the child process (and should exit 0 if it is successful).

BUGS

Not enough easy stuff here yet. Please contribute your common patterns!
