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.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,

Second that... some docs on the whole lua-sys thing would be nice... I really can't deduce the whole workings just from the example files.

PS: tried 'return pid' maybe that returns something usefull?
