sorry to bother you once again, but I am stuck with a
problem. This what I am doing:
1. I create an object by calling Expect->spawn().
2. Then I use this object to fire some commands
which are spawning another set of commands and so on.
3. I am then calling $obj->pid() to get the pid of
4. Now I want to kill the commands that were
spawned by this handle. So i am sending a kill signal to -$pid.
($pid =pid of the handle).
But some times the child processes created
through the handle remain in the system. What is the reliable way to
kill all such child processes created through the handle? Please help
me out of this.
I am using perl and Expect 1.15. A similler
query in the newsgroup comp.lang.perl.misc had no answers. So I
thought you could help me.
