random musings about computers, life, and everything

tried again to work on the named pipe for randomplay (cf. my entry from last weekend). the current status is that I know when randomplay writes to the pipe & when it doesn't, & that my small (reading) shell script can handle the results in a sane way. zombies are left only when I go to the next song; but they are cleaned on exit, & the named pipe is removed as well. - in fact I hardly changed anything — maybe just waiting for 7 or 8 days was enough. better than nothing. & — oh yes: my ion3 status bar tells me what I'm listening to, too ;-) update 1: I slowly seem to get rid of the zombies with some $SIG{CHLD} magic.
update 2: & later they re-appeared again.
