Remote Launch Service
Purports to provide an API for remote launching of Chicken oriented processes.
Gets or sets the port number to communicate with a remote launch server.
Gets or sets the SSL protocol for verification; one of (none sslv2-or-v3 sslv2 sslv3 tls).
Returns a remote launch client object of NAME for the remote launch server at HOST:PORT.
The CONTEXT must be a ssl-protocol symbol,
#f for no SSL support, or a ssl-client-context object.
Returns a list of the remote server version, chicken version, processor, byteorder, OS type, and OS version.
Returns an association list of the remote repository - (<extension-symbol> <version-string> [rest ...]).
Returns information for the specified EXTENSION.
Performs a remote installation of the requested EXTENSION. Returns the output of chicken-setup.
Performs a remote installation delete of the requested EXTENSION. Returns the output of chicken-setup.
Performs a remote process start of COMMAND COMMAND-ARGUMENTS. Returns a list - (<pid> (<start time UTC vector>)).
Returns a list of the pid and the exit status of the remote process identified by PID. Either (<pid> #f) when the process is still running or (<pid> (<normal-exit-flag> <status-code or signal-code> <stop time UTC vector>)).
Performs a process termination for the process identified by PID. Return value is the same as
Currently cannot shutdown a remote Windows process.
The remote launch server is named 'chicken-launchd' and installed in the default program directory.
Usage: chicken-launchd [options...] -b, --backlog=BACKLOG number of maximally pending connections [default: 4] -S, --ssl=SSL-PROTOCOL SSL protocol symbol [default: none] -t, --host=HOST host restriction [default: <none>] -p, --port=PORT port number [default: 4001] -d, --debug Debug mode -V, --version Display version -h, --help Display this text
SSL support is incomplete and shouldn't be used.
The chicken-setup stderr is not captured.
