Summary0006146: Implement kill -9 using TerminateProcess, or provide TerminateProcess
DescriptionI implemented terminate_process like this:

#include <windows.h>

CAMLprim value o_terminate_process(value o_pid)

  // The implementation of Unix.create_process returns the Handle as PID.
  // Luckily this is exactly what we need.
  HANDLE pid = (HANDLE) Long_val(o_pid);
  BOOL result = TerminateProcess(pid, 0);
  o_result = Val_bool(result);


external terminate_process: int -> bool = "o_terminate_process"

I figured I might as well share the code. This could be used either to implement Unix.kill at least for signal SIGKILL. Or, a new function terminate_process could be provided. Just like create_process exists to simulate the Windows function CreateProcess using the Unix function fork, the terminate_process would exist to simulate the Windows function TerminateProcess using the Unix function kill.

LexiFi's version has implemented exactly that (implementing partially Unix.kill for Sys.sigkill). Unless someone argues in favor of a dedicated terminate_process function, I'll commit a version of the "Unix.kill" proposal.

Wish granted (commit 14059 on trunk).
