Hi, These question has probably


These question has probably already been posted, but since the search does not work at this time, I cannot check this out.

I am trying the Win32::Process; module.

I have created a process using

                        ".")|| die ErrorReport();

I can get the process Id using:

$ID = $ProcessObj->GetProcessID();

If I let the code sleep 15 seconds and during these 15 seconds I close notepad.exe, how can I check if these process is still running in the perl script?


RE: Hi, These question has probably

Hi Thierry,

Instead of calling sleep() try


From the Perl dox
Wait for the process to die. $timeout should be specified in milliseconds. To wait forever, specify the constant INFINITE

Email welcome if you're in a hurry or something -- but post in tek-tips as well please, and I will post my reply here as well.
