Global Variable


Posted when the task has stopped execution. This notification can be posted either when the task has exited normally or as a result of terminate being sent to the NSTask object. If the NSTask object gets released, however, this notification will not get sent, as the port the message would have been sent on was released as part of the task release. The observer method can use terminationStatus to determine why the task died. See Ending an NSTask for an example.


const NSNotificationName NSTaskDidTerminateNotification;


The notification object is the NSTask object that was terminated. This notification does not contain a userInfo dictionary.

This notification is posted from the thread in which the NSTask object called launch. When launching a task from a secondary thread or background queue, you can use the terminationHandler property instead for greater control over the execution context of any operations to be performed after the task finishes.
