I recommend to read the overview at
if you haven't yet (that's the big picture; that's where development
stopped last year; there are also many open questions listed). I also
recommend to read these threads:

You might find more relevant threads on the mailing lists if you search
for Boost.Process. That way you get a complete overview about the
problems. :)

I'm afraid there is not much more than MSDN and man pages. At least I'm
not aware of any documentation which explains those similarities and
differences we are interested in. What might help though is studying the
Java and .NET API. Sun and Microsoft must have gone this way before (at
least partly).
