Support for running scripts when a torrent finishes downloading on Windows
|Reported by:||rb07||Owned by:||rb07|
The changes since version 2.13 to this functionality use features unsupported on Windows (pipe(), SIGCHLD).
More interesting is: does the library really need pipe()? The included patch shows an alternative for Windows, where the script/program is executed asynchronously.
The terminology also is a bit wrong, its not only scripts, anything that is executable can be used. Since Windows has no shell, there are no shell scripts (do .bat files count as shell scripts?), but there are other scripts; I just mention this in case somebody says the functionality should be scraped altogether for builds that target Windows (I don't run anything, but if the library supports it, and the applications make it visible to the users, then it should be done right).
