Changes for version 1.2

  • do not use vfork with spawnp, to avoid running into lots of problems (execvp might call malloc, better thread safety etc.), at the cost of using fork instead of vfork.
  • fix a (rather theoretical) memory corruption bug.

Modules

fork+exec, or spawn, a subprocess as quickly as possible
