The fields of a process are:
A string, the name of the process.
A list containing the command arguments that were used to start this process.
A function used to accept output from the process instead of a buffer,
A function called whenever the process receives a signal, or
The associated buffer of the process.
An integer, the Unix process ID.
A flag, non-
nil if this is really a child process.
nil for a network connection.
A marker indicating the position of the end of the last output from this process inserted into the buffer. This is often but not always the end of the buffer.
If this is non-
nil, killing SXEmacs while this process is still
running does not ask for confirmation about killing the process.
These two fields record 16 bits each of the process status returned by
wait system call.
The process status, as
process-status should return it.
If these two fields are not equal, a change in the status of the process needs to be reported, either by running the sentinel or by inserting a message in the process buffer.
nil if communication with the subprocess uses a PTY;
nil if it uses a pipe.
The file descriptor for input from the process.
The file descriptor for output to the process.
The file descriptor for the terminal that the subprocess is using. (On
some systems, there is no need to record this, so the value is
The name of the terminal that the subprocess is using,
nil if it is using pipes.
