    Python interface for process control.

    This module defines three Process classes for spawning,
    communicating and control processes. They are: Process, ProcessOpen,
    ProcessProxy. All of the classes allow one to specify the command (cmd),
    starting working directory (cwd), and environment to create for the
    new process (env) and to "wait" for termination of the child and
    "kill" the child.

    Process:
        Use this class to simply launch a process (either a GUI app or a
        console app in a new console) with which you do not intend to
        communicate via it std handles.

    ProcessOpen:
        Think of this as a super version of Python's os.popen3() method.
        This spawns the given command and sets up pipes for
        stdin/stdout/stderr which can then be used to communicate with
        the child.

    ProcessProxy:
        This is a heavy-weight class that, similar to ProcessOpen,
        spawns the given commands and sets up pipes to the child's
        stdin/stdout/stderr. However, it also starts three threads to
        proxy communication between each of the child's and parent's std
        handles. At the parent end of this communication are, by
        default, IOBuffer objects. You may specify your own objects here
        (usually sub-classing from IOBuffer, which handles some
        synchronization issues for you). The result is that it is
        possible to have your own IOBuffer instance that gets, say, a
        .write() "event" for every write that the child does on its
        stdout.

        Understanding ProcessProxy is pretty complex. Some examples
        below attempt to help show some uses. Here is a diagram of the
        comminucation:

                            <parent process>
               ,---->->->------'   ^   `------>->->----,
               |                   |                   v
           IOBuffer             IOBuffer            IOBuffer        
           (p.stdout)           (p.stderr)          (p.stdin)
               |                   |                   |
           _OutFileProxy        _OutFileProxy       _InFileProxy
           thread               thread              thread
               |                   ^                   |
               `----<-<-<------,   |   ,------<-<-<----'
                            <child process>

    Usage:
        import process
        p = process.<Process class>(cmd='echo hi', ...)
        #... use the various methods and attributes

    Examples:
      A simple 'hello world':
        >>> import process
        >>> p = process.ProcessOpen(['echo', 'hello'])
        >>> p.stdout.read()
        'hello\r\n'
        >>> p.wait()   # .wait() returns the child's exit status
        0

      Redirecting the stdout handler:
        >>> import sys
        >>> p = process.ProcessProxy(['echo', 'hello'], stdout=sys.stdout)
        hello

      Using stdin (need to use ProcessProxy here because it defaults to
      text-mode translation on Windows, ProcessOpen does not support
      this):
        >>> p = process.ProcessProxy(['sort'])
        >>> p.stdin.write('5\n')
        >>> p.stdin.write('2\n')
        >>> p.stdin.write('7\n')
        >>> p.stdin.close()
        >>> p.stdout.read()
        '2\n5\n7\n'

      Specifying environment variables:
        >>> p = process.ProcessOpen(['perl', '-e', 'print $ENV{FOO}'])
        >>> p.stdout.read()
        ''
        >>> p = process.ProcessOpen(['perl', '-e', 'print $ENV{FOO}'],
        ...                         env={'FOO':'bar'})
        >>> p.stdout.read()
        'bar'

      Killing a long running process (On Linux, to poll you must use
      p.wait(os.WNOHANG)):
        >>> p = ProcessOpen(['perl', '-e', 'while (1) {}'])
        >>> try:
        ...     p.wait(os.WNOHANG)  # poll to see if is process still running
        ... except ProcessError, ex:
        ...     if ex.errno == ProcessProxy.WAIT_TIMEOUT:
        ...             print "process is still running"
        ...
        process is still running
        >>> p.kill(42)
        >>> p.wait()
        42

      Providing objects for stdin/stdout/stderr:
        XXX write this, mention IOBuffer subclassing.
"""
#TODO:
#   - Discuss the decision to NOT have the stdout/stderr _OutFileProxy's
#     wait for process termination before closing stdin. It will just
#     close stdin when stdout is seen to have been closed. That is
#     considered Good Enough (tm). Theoretically it would be nice to
#     only abort the stdin proxying when the process terminates, but
#     watching for process termination in any of the parent's thread
#     adds the undesired condition that the parent cannot exit with the
#     child still running. That sucks.
#     XXX Note that I don't even know if the current stdout proxy even
#         closes the stdin proxy at all.
#   - DavidA: if I specify "unbuffered" for my stdin handler (in the
#     ProcessProxy constructor) then the stdin IOBuffer should do a
#     fparent.read() rather than a fparent.readline(). TrentM: can I do
#     that? What happens?

def _fixupCommand(cmd, env=None):
    """Fixup the command string so it is launchable via CreateProcess.

    One cannot just launch, say "python", via CreateProcess. A full path
    to an executable is required. In general there are two choices:
        1. Launch the command string via the shell. The shell will find
           the fullpath to the appropriate executable. This shell will
           also be able to execute special shell commands, like "dir",
           which don't map to an actual executable.
        2. Find the fullpath to the appropriate executable manually and
           launch that exe.

    Option (1) is preferred because you don't have to worry about not
    exactly duplicating shell behaviour and you get the added bonus of
    being able to launch "dir" and friends.

    However, (1) is not always an option. Doing so when the shell is
    command.com (as on all Win9x boxes) or when using WinNT's cmd.exe,
    problems are created with .kill() because these shells seem to eat
    up Ctrl-C's and Ctrl-Break's sent via
    win32api.GenerateConsoleCtrlEvent().  Strangely this only happens
    when spawn via this Python interface. For example, Ctrl-C get
    through to hang.exe here:
      C:\> ...\w9xpopen.exe "C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM /c hang.exe"
      ^C
    but not here:
      >>> p = ProcessOpen('hang.exe')
      # This results in the same command to CreateProcess as
      # above.
      >>> p.kill()

    Hence, for these platforms we fallback to option (2).  Cons:
      - cannot spawn shell commands like 'dir' directly
      - cannot spawn batch files

    This class provides a Python file-like interface to either a Python
    file object (pretty easy job), a file descriptor, or an OS-specific
    file handle (e.g.  Win32 handles to file objects on Windows). Any or
    all of these object types may be passed to this wrapper. If more
    than one is specified this wrapper prefers to work with certain one
    in this order:
        - file descriptor (because usually this allows for
          return-immediately-on-read-if-anything-available semantics and
          also provides text mode translation on Windows)
        - OS-specific handle (allows for the above read semantics)
        - file object (buffering can cause difficulty for interacting
          with spawned programs)

    It also provides a place where related such objects can be kept
    alive together to prevent premature ref-counted collection. (E.g. on
    Windows a Python file object may be associated with a Win32 file
    handle. If the file handle is not kept alive the Python file object
    will cease to function.)
