I think you could work around this by remembering the main .NET thread and calling Abort on it:

from System import Threading
main = Thread.CurrentThread

# and then later on...


But I'd suggest that interrupting a thread at an arbitrary point is a little dangerous (as it may have some state which isn't entirely consistent that it's trying to update).

Subject: [IronPython] thread.interrupt_main() not implemented


When i want to use thread.interrupt_main() in iron python script, i've got this error:
   NotImplementedError: interrupt_main not implemented

Is there an equivalent in ironpython?
