I have a windows exe, which prints some output on windows console and keeps on running for infinite time. I want to put this in a perl script in such a way that when this .exe is executed output for the same is displayed on screen in real time and also it should be stopped/killed after a fixed interval provided as user input. I am able to open the command with:
$pid = open( $fileHandler, '-|', "$Command" );
where $Command has name of my EXE. Then I read $fileHandler and print the records. But I am not able to stop this exe after a fixed interval of time. I tried using alarm, but it is of no use as alarm is not working in windows. Is there any way I can stop this exe after a specified interval?

In reply to Windows run an exe print its output and cut it off after a time by anshumangoyal

    [Discipulus]: karl you says the same of my mom: in your place I'd been
    [Discipulus]: preoccupied.. ;=)
    Discipulus stopped with turkisk spices anyway.. but better hashes than arrays!
    [oiskuu]: Discipulus, from the edge or from the top?
    [Discipulus]: oiskuu from the top aka 0-0 coords
    [LanX]: edge or node?
    [oiskuu]: from each height difference, there's a fixed number of "moves right" - "moves left". So it's a number of combinations.
    [Discipulus]: I already know how much distinct paths exists but to demonstrate the property i want to have them all
    [oiskuu]: ie C(n, k); where n is height difference, k is position in the line
    [Discipulus]: infact there are 70 distinct path to reach the tale wich holds 70
