in reply to How to portably stop processes?

I'm no expert, but fork and perlfork talk at length about not to use kill on children when fork was emulated.


There are various alternatives listed in perlipc though.

An SSCCE with tests might help provide alternatives.

I'm quite sure that you can have install dependencies based on the actual OS. Never tried this tho.

HTH. :)
