Javascript Question

check if child_process has ended in node.js?

I am creating a cakefile using node.js and want to know if a child_process has ended before moving on the next one.

{exec} = require 'child_process'
exec 'casperjs test.js', (err, stdout, stderr) ->
err && throw err
log stdout
if //exec has finished
log "finished executing"


When the callback of exec is called, the process has already been terminated. There's no need to add an additional check.

For spawn, you can bind an exit event listener.
