Killing a windows process

Hi,

I’m starting a bunch of processes using win32/process
(http://rubyforge.org/projects/win32utils/). I want to be able to
kill some of those processes. In *nix, I’d send them a TERM signal.
What’s the Windows equivalent?

Thanks,
Joe

signal = 4 # or 9 if you really want to take it out :slight_smile:
Process.kill signal, pid

pth

I’m using win32/process’s Create function to start a new Windows
process.

However, if I do a Process.kill(0, ) to a program that I started
via Ruby, it always returns back an array with the pid in it, even if
the process was killed.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Joe
