proc_terminate

(PHP 5 CVS only)

proc_terminate --  kills a process opened by proc_open

Description

int proc_terminate ( resource process [, int signal])

Signals a process (created using proc_open()) that it should terminate. proc_terminate() returns immediately and does not wait for the process to terminate.

The optional signal is only useful on POSIX operating systems; you may specify a signal to send to the process using the kill(2) system call. The default is SIGTERM.

proc_terminate() allows you terminate the process and continue with other tasks. You may poll the process (to see if it has stopped yet) by using the proc_get_status() function.

See also proc_open(), proc_close(), and proc_get_status().
