The software on this pages will slowly be moved to GitHub https://github.com/hilbix/. The CVS repository will be migrated to GIT as well, so the history will be preserved, a bit. See FAQ.
The tools are developed under Linux with
release early, release often
So you can consider this beta software, or alpha, or pre-alpha, or even worse ;)
Have a look in the download directory for all downloads.
As always here, all you get is the source. No binaries here.
Program watchdog to terminate a program with starving output
⇒ ⇒ ⇒ The development shifted to another location. All future versions will be published at https://github.com/hilbix/checkrun ⇐ ⇐ ⇐
Checkrun runs a program and checks, if it did some output within a given time interval. If no output can be detected, the child will be terminated, first with a HUP, then a TERM and afterwards a KILL.
In a distant future all this functionality here might be implemented into my "timeout" tool as well, however I needed this feature before timeout had this feature. If you need to test a pipe for silence, use /bin/cat as program, or try the "timeout" tool.
