-> I'm trying to use twill to test a web app written in asp.net. Everything works fine with twill-sh but twill-fork fails on os.fork which is not available on windows. Is there any workaround to use twill-fork on windows systems or any other means to obtain the same feature?
I'm very far away from being a Windows programmer, but I think you could
mimic this with subprocess calls. I replaced os.fork with a subprocess
call in the function tests/twilltestlib.py:run_server in order to get
the tests to work properly.
I will look into it, but at the moment I'm not working very actively on
twill, and twill-fork is even lower on the totem poll. Sorry ;(.
