sys.spawn / sys.pid question

Hello all,

I'm currently trying to run an external console application as a background job started from a murgaLua script using the features provided by the luasys package in murgaLua 0.6.8.
I did not yet succeed in checking the status of a spawned process. I did the following:

local pid = sys.pid()
sys.spawn(app, nil, pid)

now I miss something like pid:status() which I could loop over in order to determine the present process status.

Any idea how to do this would be warmly welcome.

Thanks and regards,
Gerald
