in reply to Process Management script

Seeing as I'm waiting for my code to compile, I'm going to pull out a magic ball and see what I can make from it.

First off, how do you "store" a process? A process is either running or it is not. The concept of "storing" a process? No comprendo.

Peering into the magic ball, I wonder if you mean that you're storing a table of processes. Is your goal to connect to this service, request a function, which causes the service to launch a corresponding process in some way? This is not significantly different, then, from xinet or even a web service that redirects to many CGI scripts based on the URL. Or even, really, a remote procedure call (RPC) in general, though that doesn't necessarily involve subprocesses.

So... the best way? Well, seeing as my crystal ball is still very hazy, I'm not even sure I got that much right, I'm not feeling confident enough to pick a best for that. Nor am I sure what "best" would be - to me it would depend on the design of the rest of the system, I guess.

[Corion]: Meh. I need to find myself a better "programming" feed than r/programming (which is just HackerNews reposts and advertisements, very little code). Maybe I should select a list of links that I liked on r/programming and then google for ...
[Corion]: ... an aggregator site that also listed (ideally) all of these links once. And maybe also have an exclude list to blacklist some of the most spammy links that the site may have never mentioned at all
[marto]: I gave up reading HN at all, and feel much better for it :P
[Corion]: Now, how to best automate that Google search ... :-)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I'm also short of not reading it at all. I already stopped reading it in the morning because it gave me a foul mood.
