Spawn a server using configuration settings provided in a file and/or as arguments.
When a server is spawned, a reaper process is also started which is responsible for removing the associated socket file. A normal kill signal sent to either the server or reaper process will result in a cleanup.
usage: ruspawn (-f <path>|-c <name>=<value>) [...] [-- ...] Spawn a russ server. Using the configuration, a socket file is created and the listener socket is passed to the server. The path the socket file is output to stdout. ruspawn is different from rustart in the following ways. If main:addr (the socket file path) is not specified, a path is dynamically chosen and used to set main:addr. A reaper process is started to automatically cleanup the socket file when the server exits. If the server or the repear are signaled, they both will be terminated and the socket file cleaned up. ruspawn is the preferred way to start a server. Where: -c <name>=<value> Set configuration attribute. -f <path> Load configuration file. -- ... Arguments to pass to the server program.
