Well, the following snippet of code is pretty ugly, but it seems to work. It is executed by the server program in response to a command from the client via SOAP.

my @ps = `ps -ef`; my @pid = (split(/ +/, (grep(/login -- mrc/, @ps))[0]))[1]; my @kill; while (1) { last unless @pid = grep {$_ > 1} @pid; push @kill, @pid; my $pidlist = join('|', @pid); last unless @pid = grep(/\s+[\d]+\s+($pidlist) /, @ps); @pid = map {(split(/\s+/, $_))[1]} @pid; } kill 'TERM', @kill
What this does is get a list of all running processes, finds one named "login -- mrc", then goes through the list looking for all its children, children's children, etc. Once it's done this, it kills them all. Ugh.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
