Context switches

Context switches

Each running process receives a number of ticks when it is scheduled. This is the equivalent of a UNIX time slice. The execution of each instruction costs the process a number of ticks. When the process has used up all its ticks, the bshell schedules another process. The switch to another process is referred to as a context switch.

Events

Events

BaanERP programs are designed to respond to events. Usually, they consist of a main loop that waits for events to occur. When an event occurs, the program performs the appropriate actions to process the event. It then returns to its waiting state.

Event types

There are four broad categories of events, as listed below. For a full list of event types, see Event types.

Multitasking and the GUI

Multitasking and the GUI

The BAAN bshell provides the execution environment for BAAN applications. Whenever a user logs on to the BAAN system, a separate bshell process is activated for that user. So, when multiple users log on to the same BAAN system, or when the same user logs on multiple times, multiple bshell processes are activated on the execution platform.

  • Running.
    The process is in the running queue. It has been scheduled to run, or is ready to be scheduled.
  • Blocking.
    The process is in the blocking queue. It is waiting for input.

Synchronizing processes with the wait() function
By patvdv at 26 Feb 2008 - 21:57

Synchronizing processes with the wait() function

The wait() function enables synchronization of parent and child processes. It causes the parent process to wait for one or all of its children to exit before continuing. Each child process sends an exit signal to the parent process when it ends.
The parent can choose to ignore child signals or not. If it wants to ignore child signals, the parent process calls:

Expanding text variables

Variables or expressions that are included in text lines can be expanded or substituted for report purposes. You must set the variable lattr.textexpand=TRUE if you want this to happen. Expressions are internally evaluated by the function expr.compile().
