in reply to Signal Capturing....

Once you've started your Perl script from Tcl, all you need to do is send it any one of several signals -- including, but not limited to SIGBREAK SIGINT SIGQUIT SIGTERM -- that will cause it to die immediately*.

So, now all you need to know is how to send signals from Tcl -- which is a question for a Tcl forum not a Perl forum.

(*Unless the author of the Perl script has decided to trap that signal.)
