// A MultiProcessTest is a test class which makes it easier to
// write a test which requires code running out of process.
// To create a multiprocess test simply follow these steps:
// 1) Derive your test from MultiProcessTest. Example:
// class MyTest : public MultiProcessTest {
// };
// TEST_F(MyTest, TestCaseName) {
// ...
// }
// 2) Create a mainline function for the child processes and include
// testing/multiprocess_func_list.h.
// See the declaration of the MULTIPROCESS_TEST_MAIN macro
// in that file for an example.
// 3) Call SpawnChild("foo"), where "foo" is the name of
// the function you wish to run in the child processes.
// That's it!
class MultiProcessTest : public PlatformTest {
// Run a child process.
// 'procname' is the name of a function which the child will
// execute. It must be exported from this library in order to
// run.
// Example signature:
// extern "C" int __declspec(dllexport) FooBar() {
// // do client work here
// }
// Returns the handle to the child, or NULL on failure
