in thread Kill a process in perl windows and proceed only if it killed the process

what is 'cP' argument means?

You are calling Win32::Process::Wait() as a subroutine; you should be calling it as a method.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?

    sorry, I didn't understand.
    I get the processids of the applications running on a processing node and I just want to kill it and wait for that process to be killed. I am not creating the process using Win32::Process::Create().
      I am not creating the process using Win32::Process::Create().

      Then you will need to obtain a handle to the process using:

      my $proc = Win32::Process::Open( $pid, $iflags ); Creates a handle Perl can use to an existing process as identified by +$pid.

      And then call the Wait method on that handle:

      $proc->Wait( <milliseconds|INFINITE> );

        Can I use this syntax: Win32::Process::Open(my $proc, $pid, undef) ?
        I tried the syntax you suggested but gave me the following error
        Usage: Win32::Process::Open(cP, pid, inherit)

Lady_Aleena clean up after dinner finally.
[Discipulus]: uch! so we are twice lucky to have MCE..;=)
[marioroy]: Working a midnight graveyard shift, on the way home ran out of gas. just 2 minutes later somebody stops with a small tank of gas. It's wierd. There's always someone nearby for some reason.
[Lady_Aleena]: I was the one who stop[ed in the middle of a cold night to pick up a small family walking to a gas station. I got a few gallons of free gas for the round trip, and the grandmother said she'd pray for me.
[marioroy]: Folks do not know it, but MCE was ridiculously difficult. At Niagra Falls, heard a voice on enabling Grace while in the mist boat. That 10x performance is possible.
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena Angels on earth are real people. That's awesome.
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, what does MCE stand for in this instance? There are 3 pages of abbreviations to go through.
[Lady_Aleena]: ^ or Discipulus...
[marioroy]: Many-core Engine
[choroba]: MCE
