Thank

By calling API below in sequence,
  1. CreateToolhelp32Snapshot
  2. Process32First
  3. Process32Next

you can get  PROCESSENTRY32 structure,
from which you can find ThreadHandle, or ProcessHandle

Then you can kill process using TerminateProcess (or CloseHandle)

Better then that, a programmer-group implemented these
unix commands for win32.
look for and download a package called unix956 or unix95.
i don't have a valid link any more, because it's been
a long time ago since i downloaded it.
It contain very valualbe commands like ls, ps, kill, tail,..

Hi, I realized that this example is just showing how to use tlhelp32 unit, what you need to do is to translate it into a programm dealing with processes. That is to replace all the 'Module' with 'Process'(thanks for the similarity in name of those structures), and do some other neccesary modifications:

1. remove those threee +1 after the sz....;
2. get the property you want (such as processID etc.) rather than the original filename property of ModuleEntry.
3. If you want to compile it in D4, change the type of VerLength from integer to Cardinal;
