Waitmax 1.1

Waitmax executes a program in a new process.
Waitmax executes a program in a new process. If that process does not exit within a certain time, it is being killed with signal TERM.

Waitmax is available under GPL Version 2. The precompiled RPM runs on all i386-based systems. It contains a version of waitmax which is statically linked with diet and does not need libc nor any other library.

Examples:

Copy a large file with scp. Interrupt if this takes more than one hour:

waitmax 3600 scp bigfile.tar.gz somehost:/tmp

OPTIONS

-s, --signal signum
Use signum to kill the program instead of TERM.

-h, --help
Show short help and exit.

-V, --version
Show version and exit.

EXIT VALUES

255 The program has been signalled and terminated, because the
time has elapsed, before the program has exited itself.

254 The program has exited neither by signal nor normally.
Strange. This should never happen.

253 The program couldn~t be executed.

128+signum
The program has terminated with signal signum before the
time has elapsed (not by waitmax, but by itself or some
other process).

1 Waitmax has been called with illegal options.
