Documentation for method close-stdin

Documentation for method close-stdin, assembled from the following types:

class Proc::Async

From Proc::Async

(Proc::Async) method close-stdin

method close-stdin(Proc::Async:D:)

Closes the standard input stream of the external program. Programs that read from STDIN often only terminate when their input stream is closed. So if waiting for the promise from #method start hangs (for a program opened for writing), it might be a forgotten close-stdin.

The Proc::Async object must be created for writing (with Proc::Async.new(:w, $path, @args)). Otherwise an X::Proc::Async::OpenForWriting exception will the thrown.

start must have been called before calling method close-stdin, otherwise an X::Proc::Async::MustBeStarted exception is thrown.
