The parent process must not be stopped when the child process is running.
I don't know if this is true.. I see no problem for the main to be stopped
while child is running, but when the child dies a SIGCHLD is released to the
main process, and if it's stopped, the callback will or will not be executed?
But note that I'm meaning stopped a processes that got a SIGSTOP..
I now added an inter process comunication via pipe to display the error meassge
by the parent process.
Yes.. that's a good solution..
I think the cleanup of the zombie can be done in the parent process by a signal
but just doing this would not clean up it.. you would just handle the signal..
you have to do this:
void sigchld_handler (int sig)
pid = wait3 (&status, 0, NULL);
/* do something usefull here.. */
/* maybe consult a matrix to know which program it was */
signal (SIGCHLD, sigchld_handler);
without the wait3, wait4-like functions the zombie process will remain at
the system, even if you catch the signal..
