I'm using boost 1.64 on Windows7 with VisualStudio 2015 64bit.
While testing boost.process I've encountered some issues that I'm not able to resolve:
1. Passing of multiple parameters:
Consider this minimal example:
bp::child c(bp::search_path("ping"), "127.0.0.1 -t", bp::std_out > is);
while (c.running() && std::getline(is, line) && !line.empty())
std::cerr << line << std::endl;
catch (const std::exception& e)
std::cerr << "Error in execution: " << e.what();
This doesn't correctly execute "ping 127.0.0.1 -t", instead it will act like "ping 127.0.0.1". I could not find an up2date example on how to pass parameters correctly. Any ideas?
2. No output on std::cout
It seems that some applications don't output to std::cout/clog/cerr but somehow via printing to console directly (my guess as it is colored output on windows)
In those instances, redirection fails. Can anyone think of a way to still monitor the output of the spawned child?
