Waits for new command processor and closes stream on associated pipe.
int _pclose( FILE *stream );
- Return value from previous call to _popen.
Returns the exit status of the terminating command processor, or –1 if an error occurs. The format of the return value is the same as that for _cwait, except the low-order and high-order bytes are swapped.
The _pclose function looks up the process ID of the command processor (CMD.EXE) started by the associated _popen call, executes a _cwait call on the new command processor, and closes the stream on the associated pipe.
|_pclose||<stdio.h>||Win 98, Win Me, Win NT, Win 2000, Win XP|
