Lists all running functions within the current murex session
fid-list is a tool for outputting all the functions currently managed by that murex session. Those functions could be murex functions, builtins or any external executables launched from murex.
fid-list is a little like
ps (on POSIX systems) however
fid-list was not written to be POSIX compliant.
Multiple flags cannot be used with each other.
fid-list [ flag ] -> <stdout>
jobs is an alias for
fid-list: --jobs: jobs ->
jsonmap of background jobs
--csvOutput table in a
--helpOutputs a list of parameters and a descriptions
--jobsShow background and stopped jobs
--jsonlOutput table in a jsonlines (
jsonl) format (defaulted to when piped)
jsonmap of stopped jobs
--ttyForce default TTY output even when piped
Because murex is a multi-threaded shell, builtins are not forked processes like in a traditional / POSIX shell. This means that you cannot use the operating systems default process viewer (eg
ps) to list murex functions. This is where
fid-list comes into play. It is used to view all the functions and processes that are managed by the current murex session. That would include:
fid-listis a builtin command)
*(generic): generic (primitive)
bexists: Check which builtins exist
bg: Run processes in the background
builtins: Returns runtime information on the internal state of murex
csv: CSV files (and other character delimited tables)
exec: Runs an executable
fexec: Execute a command or function, bypassing the usual order of precedence.
fg: Sends a background process into the foreground
fid-kill: Terminate a running murex function
fid-killall: Terminate all running murex functions
jobs: Lists all running functions within the current murex session
jsonl: JSON Lines (primitive)
murex-update-exe-list: Forces murex to rescan $PATH looking for exectables
