Issue #269 invalid

coverage not work in subprocess mode

Anonymous created an issue

I have following simple codes:

import os, subprocess, shlex,time

def extest():
    cmd = 'python test.py'
    cmdlist = shlex.split(cmd)
    process = subprocess.Popen(cmdlist)



print "ex---done"
print "test"

I set COVERAGE_PROCESS_START to .bashrc, and also insert following code to sitecustomize.py:

import coverage

after that, i run: coverage run --parallel -source=. ex.py I expect could get the report for both ex.py and test.py, however, none of them appear in the report ,instead, something like:


appear in the report

what could be the reason?

    COVERAGE_PROCESS_START should point to a .coveragerc file, not your .bashrc file, though I don't think that's the problem.

    Can you show the actual output from a terminal session that shows the contents of your files, and your command lines, the report output, etc?

    Actually, using a ticket for this is unlikely to work, esp since you are Anonymous. Can you send an email with the details, and we'll work through why your subprocess isn't being measured.
