- process_kill(+PID) is det
- process_kill(+PID, +Signal) is det
- Send signal to process PID. Default is
term. Signal is an
integer, Unix signal name (e.g.
SIGSTOP) or the more Prolog
friendly variation one gets after removing
SIG and downcase
stop. On Windows systems, Signal is ignored and
the process is terminated using the TerminateProcess() API. On
Windows systems PID must be obtained from process_create/3,
while any PID is allowed on Unix systems.
- - SICStus does not accept the prolog friendly version. We
choose to do so for compatibility with on_signal/3.
