process-run COMMANDLINEprocedure
process-run COMMAND ARGUMENT-LISTprocedure

Creates a new child process. The PID of the new process is returned.

  • The single parameter version passes the COMMANDLINE to the system shell, so usual argument expansion can take place.
  • The multiple parameter version directly invokes the COMMAND with the ARGUMENT-LIST.
