Kill all children processes when the parent dies
CaoE makes it easy to automatically kills all spawned children (and grandchildren) processes when the parent dies, even if killed by SIGKILL.
at the beginning of your program.
How it works
When caoe.install() is called, it forks out a child process and a grandchild process. Both the parent and the child process will block, only the grandchild process will continue to run. The child process keeps checking the status of parent. If it found that the parent has died, it kills grandchild process (and grand-grandchild processes if there are any) and suicides.
- Fix a bug that child process will exit on any signal.
- Drop support for python 2.6.
- Use py.test and tox for test runner, drop dependency of nose.
- Make tests more stable.
