Import the package

You can import daemonize as usual with PID. In the root CMakelists.txt file of your package, after the package declaration you have to write something like:

PID_Dependency(daemonize)

It will try to install last version of the package.

If you want a specific version (recommended), for instance the currently last released version:

PID_Dependency(daemonize VERSION 0.2)

Notice that PID will automatically install the last available patch version of the package when configuring the project with the option REQUIRED_PACKAGES_AUTOMATIC_DOWNLOAD to ON (default value).

Components

daemonize

This is a shared library (set of header files and a shared binary object).

functions to help creating, stopping and monitoring background processes

include directive :

Not specified (dangerous). You can try including any or all of these headers:

#include <pid/daemonize.h>

CMake usage :

In the CMakeLists.txt files of your applications and tests, or those of your libraries that do not export the dependency:

PID_Component_Dependency(
				COMPONENT	your component name
				DEPEND	daemonize
				PACKAGE	daemonize)

In the CMakeLists.txt files of libraries exporting the dependency :

PID_Component_Dependency(
				COMPONENT	your component name
				EXPORT	daemonize
				PACKAGE	daemonize)

daemon-launcher

This is an application (just a binary executable). Potentially designed to be called by an application or library.

an application to run any executable as a background process and kill them

CMake usage :

In the CMakeLists.txt files of your applications and tests, or those of your libraries that do not export the dependency:

PID_Component_Dependency(
				COMPONENT	your component name
				DEPEND	daemon-launcher
				PACKAGE	daemonize)

In the CMakeLists.txt files of libraries exporting the dependency :

PID_Component_Dependency(
				COMPONENT	your component name
				EXPORT	daemon-launcher
				PACKAGE	daemonize)

long-running-process

This is an application (just a binary executable). Potentially designed to be called by an application or library.

a dummy long running process for pid-tests/daemonize test purposes

CMake usage :

In the CMakeLists.txt files of your applications and tests, or those of your libraries that do not export the dependency:

PID_Component_Dependency(
				COMPONENT	your component name
				DEPEND	long-running-process
				PACKAGE	daemonize)

In the CMakeLists.txt files of libraries exporting the dependency :

PID_Component_Dependency(
				COMPONENT	your component name
				EXPORT	long-running-process
				PACKAGE	daemonize)
