ChildProcess.getEnv()

ChildProcess.setPath(path)

Change the path of the child process after instantiation.

ChildProcess.send(message, sendHandler, options)

ChildProcess.kill(signal = 'SIGTERM')

ChildProcess.start()

ChildProcess.stop()

ChildProcess.setStatus(status)

ChildProcess.handleMessage(proc, message)

ChildProcess.addChild(proc)

This method will take a newly forked process and wrap it to work properly with the ChildProcess internals.
