/* Set the 'FD_CLOEXEC' flag of DESC if VALUE is true,
   or clear the flag if VALUE is false.
   Return 0 on success, or -1 on error with 'errno' set.

   Note that on MingW, this function does NOT protect DESC from being
   inherited into spawned children.  Instead, either use dup_cloexec
   followed by closing the original DESC, or use interfaces such as
   open or pipe2 that accept flags like O_CLOEXEC to create DESC
   non-inheritable in the first place.  */

/* Duplicates a file handle FD, while marking the copy to be closed
   prior to exec or spawn.  Returns -1 and sets errno if FD could not
   be duplicated.  */
