Hidden Console Start
Hide console and execute applications in background. HCS (Hidden Console Start) is a good alternative to simulate background process (process &) as in GNU/Linux systems.
$ ping 127.0.0.1 > log.txt &
$ hcs -e "ping 127.0.0.1 > log.txt"
What can I do with HCS?
- Launch applications in background
- Launch all the processes that you want with one call to HCS (one subprocess in one thread for each application)
You can install or upgrade HCS with:
$ pip install hcs --upgrade
Or you can install from source with:
$ git clone https://github.com/RDCH106/hidden_console_start.git --recursive $ cd hidden_console_start $ pip install .
$ hcs -e "ping 127.0.0.1 > log.txt" "mspaint"
The example executes ping to
127.0.0.1 redirecting the result to
log.txt file and launch Microsoft Paint at the same time.
