Check non internet applications

Hi,
Has anyone experience with non internet applications?
I would like to check if Word is active and if so, close it.

A test I’m making opens a file (pdf, doc, etc), has to checks if it
opens correct and then close it.

Any pointers are welcome!

Cheers,
Flaming F.

Theres lots of good stuff on Ruby on Windows
(http://rubyonwindows.blogspot.com) . Its
certainly possible to open word docs and program against them with
their OLE interface.
PDF requires different (cross platform) APIs.

Its pretty fun to open a word doc in IRB and start navigating around
it. I haven’t done much in
the way of exception handling though with OLE (because I don’t really
know the API), but
I get the impression that it will fail fast, and fail appropriately
for your tests.
