Properties
public static $exitCodes
 
Exit codes translation table.

User-defined errors must use exit codes in the 64-113 range.

Methods
public __clone()
public __construct(array $command, ?string $cwd = NULL, ?array $env = NULL, $input = NULL, ?float $timeout = 60)
 


  • throws LogicException When proc_open is not installed
public __destruct()
public addErrorOutput(string $line)
 
Adds a line to the STDERR stream.

  • internal
public addOutput(string $line)
 
Adds a line to the STDOUT stream.

  • internal
public checkTimeout()
 
Performs a check between the timeout definition and the time the process started.

In case you run a background process (with the start method), you should trigger this method regularly to ensure the process timeout

  • throws ProcessTimedOutException In case the timeout was reached
public clearErrorOutput()
 
Clears the process output.

  • return $this
public clearOutput()
 
Clears the process output.

  • return $this
public disableOutput()
 
Disables fetching output and error output from the underlying process.

  • return $this
  • throws RuntimeException In case the process is already running
  • throws LogicException if an idle timeout is set
public enableOutput()
 
Enables fetching output and error output from the underlying process.

  • return $this
  • throws RuntimeException In case the process is already running
public static fromShellCommandline(string $command, ?string $cwd = NULL, ?array $env = NULL, $input = NULL, ?float $timeout = 60)
 
Creates a Process instance as a command-line to be run in a shell wrapper.

Command-lines are parsed by the shell of your OS (/bin/sh on Unix-like, cmd.exe on Windows.) This allows using e.g. pipes or conditional execution. In this mode, signals are sent to the shell wrapper and not to your commands.

In order to inject dynamic values into command-lines, we strongly recommend using placeholders. This will save escaping values, which is not portable nor secure anyway:

$process = Process::fromShellCommandline('my_command "$MY_VAR"'); $process->run(null, ['MY_VAR' => $theValue]);

  • return static

The callback receives the type of output (out or err) and some bytes from the output in real-time. It allows to have feedback from the independent process during execution.

The STDOUT and STDERR are also available after the process is finished via the getOutput() and getErrorOutput() methods.

  • return int The exit status code

Each environment variable value should be a string. If it is an array, the variable is ignored. If it is false or null, it will be removed when env vars are otherwise inherited.

That happens in PHP when 'argv' is registered into the $_ENV array for instance.

  • return $this
public setIdleTimeout(?float $timeout)
 
Sets the process idle timeout (max. time since last output) in seconds.

To disable the timeout, set this value to null.

  • return $this

Sets the input.

This content will be passed to the underlying process standard input.

  • throws RuntimeException In case of failure
public start(?callable $callback = NULL, array $env = [])
 
Starts the process and returns after writing the input to STDIN.

This method blocks until all STDIN data is sent to the process then it returns while the process runs in the background.

The termination of the process can be awaited with wait().

The callback receives the type of output (out or err) and some bytes from the output in real-time while writing the standard input to the process. It allows to have feedback from the independent process during execution.

  • throws RuntimeException When process can't be launched
  • throws RuntimeException When process is already running
  • throws LogicException In case a callback is provided and output has been disabled
public stop(float $timeout = 10, ?int $signal = NULL)
 
Stops the process.

  • return int|null The exit-code of the process or null if it's not running
public wait(?callable $callback = NULL)

The callback receives the type of output (out or err) and some bytes from the output in real-time while writing the standard input to the process. It allows to have feedback from the independent process during execution.

  • return int The exitcode of the process
  • throws ProcessTimedOutException When process timed out
  • throws ProcessSignaledException When process stopped after receiving signal
  • throws LogicException When process is not yet started
public waitUntil(callable $callback) : bool

  • throws LogicException When process is not yet started
  • throws ProcessTimedOutException In case the timeout was reached
