@kpaulisse's Miscellaneous Scripts

Overview

Collection of things I've written that don't warrant a project of their own, but are shared in hopes that they might be useful to someone.

The Scripts

Timeout Children Shell Utility

Link: https://github.com/kpaulisse/scripts/tree/master/timeout_children

Language: Ruby

Intended for: Linux

Description: Sets a timeout on a process, and when that process exits (or times out), kills any child processes that might have been spawned as well. Use case: a program fires off a child process, the parent exits, the child process gets inherited by init and spins forever with no good way of tracking down the process from which it originally forked.
