I want to run an executable but I need to be able to kill it if
it has not completed after 5 or so minutes.
Googling gets me signal.signal(signal.SIGALRM, handler)
but I need to use this from Windows.
I have Python 2.3.4 on WinXP Pro.
Had a look at the Python for Windows Documentation and it
seems that I can use the win32process module.
I will have a go at this but if anybody has done this before
and would be willing to share, please do.
More information about the Python-win32
