in reply to Wx-Perl-Imagick sample editor

What is the purpose of making your own photo editor? Do you have some sort of special functionality in mind?

Rather than rolling your own, you could add features to another editor, such as GIMP, which is extendable through plugin and scripting APIs.

    Do you have some sort of special functionality in mind?

    Absolutely not, I just want to integrate it into my existing system, pass it variables have it pass things back to me, behave according the GUI standards set in other windows etc.,

    But I'll a look at GIMP, really all I need is a framework.

[Corion]: Maybe doing a double-fork (daemonizing) can make go that information away, but maybe not
[Corion]: But I think my knowledge of unix/Linux datastructures is several decades out of date, so I don't really know what information it keeps on processes
[oiskuu]: The useful bits that relate to your process can be found under /proc/self. What information are you thinking of? Tty name?
[tye]: I just daemonized and getlogin() still knew who I had been.
[tye]: perhaps loginuid ? Not that I concede that something not being in /proc means it is not useful.
[Corion]: tye: That's really interesting, but maybe it is because getlogin() returns the name, or the uid, so if that user has been replaced by another user with the same uid in the meantime, that's no problem to the system...
[davido]: or on ubuntu /var/run/utmp
[Corion]: Otherwise, I would imagine that a user with a process still alive would lock that information in memory.
