Creating a process and/or executing a ruby script internally

##this is my process create script

puts(‘hello im run create clicker’)
$pid = Process.create(
:app_name => ‘ruby clicker.rb’,
:creation_flags => Process::DETACHED_PROCESS

at_exit{ Process.kill(9,$pid) }

##this is script that is supposed to be the called process

autoit =‘AutoItX3.Control’)
