in reply to A killall for Windows

Even though you warned that it would probably only work on NT flavors of Windows, I gave it run through in Win98. When run with no arguments, it displays the usage imformation as expected. When run with the -d command line option, it silently fails. When run with a process name, it will display the process name followed by a colon and the text "no process killed".

Who says that programmers can't work in the Marketing Department?
Or is that who says that Marketing people can't program?

    That would be a natural behaviour, I guess. What happens (judging by the sound of it), is that it finds no processes in the process list, probably because it tries to find NT processes. :)

    Maybe should patch it up to croak on no processes returned (that would never be able to happen on a "supported" platform).

    Thanks for the help!

    You have moved into a dark place.
    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
      I tried this on an XP box and while it did return "no process killed" it did kill the process that I passed it. So not sure what is going on there. Pretty cool gizmo I like it -
