what is 'cP' argument means?

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

    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)
