Run a process with a timeout attached to it.
TimeoutProcess provides the ability to run a process with a specified time out. You may find it useful when trying to run a process, which may not terminate in a reasonably obvious fashion. Obvious examples would be typical GUI applications which run till they are explicitly closed.
Typical usage of TimeoutProcess looks like this:
#!/usr/bin/env python import timeoutprocess timeoutprocess.TimeoutProcess(['notepad.exe', r'c:\\myfile.txt'], 60)
The first argument to TimeoutProcess take the form of the arguments to subprocess.Popen(), which is a list containing the program name, and any additional arguments.
The second argument is the time, in seconds, to allow the process to run.
