Re: a urgent help needed in C
Using the function kill() you can end the process ,for this you need the process id .The function raise() will end the current process .


man 2 kill
man raise

In the kill function you can send a signal as a second argument to end the process.There are various signals to do this like (SIGKILL,SIGSROT,SIGTERM,etc).

Re: a urgent help needed in C
Help with you is always urgent. Why not try asking sooner? Don't leave it so long before tackling the task then you won't be as stressed out.

Re: a urgent help needed in C
It's not easy: you have to find the process's main window and post it a WM_CLOSE message. There are WinAPI functions to help you with this though; see EnumWindows.

Re: a urgent help needed in C
oh... is it !!!! fine.... :) :) ..... wat about kill() function , whether we can we use that ........... I am having DEV C++ compiler.... whether kill() will work in my compiler???

i saw that function in sys.h file.. i hope u know this :)

int kill(pid_t pid, int sig);

here 'sig' refers to the signal ... in Linux it's easy to get the signal no. which is equivalent to termination of that process corresponding to the given PID no. ... but how to find the same signal number for WINDOWS.... or we have same signal formats for all OS??? :)

plz. help me out........ :)
