Hey Guys, I've created some Window's processes uing the Win32/Process (by Daniel Berger) library. When I send a signal to these processes using Win32/Process.kill([1,3..9], pid), the processes are always killed. I've tried trapping for the signal using both a rescue and Signal.trap() clause with no luck. I know that the Unix versions of the Process library allow you to capture the signal with a rescue clause for either SignalException or Interrupt Exceptions. Anyone know if the Win32/Process implements similar behavior for signals or failing that if anyone has a workaround. Sonny.

Only the following signals are supported. *SIGABRT* Abnormal termination *SIGFPE* Floating-point error *SIGILL* Illegal instruction *SIGINT* CTRL+C signal *SIGSEGV* Illegal storage access *SIGTERM * Termination request You can try using the cygwin or mingw version of command line signals, but I am not sure if they solve your problem. Unlike in *nix it is better not to use signals for process communication on windows platform. It is better to use pipes/sockets/events.
