Introduction
------------

PMkill is a simple utility program that allows Point and Shoot
killing of processes from the OS/2 2.x desktop. When invoked it
displays a 'kill' pointer which you can use to kill applications



Usage
-----

PMkill can be started from either clicking on its icon or typing
pmkill from an os/2 command prompt. If invoked from its icon it
goes into a continous kill mode where you can repeatly kill programs
by pointing to them and pressing the left mouse button. To end the
pmkill you simply press the right mouse button. If invoked from the
command line pmkill is a little more flexable in that you may specify
the desired number of kills for pmkill to preform by specifing the
number as an argument in the form 'pmkill /' where num is the
desired number of kills. Of course even with a specified number of
kills pmkill may be ended by pressing the right mouse button. Help
on the argments for pmkill can be obtained by specifing 'pmkill /?'



Known Bugs
----------

On applications started from the command line the parent process
of the selected program is kill thus it fails to kill some programs
if the parent process no longer exits. I hope to fix this in a
future version.



Acknowledgments
---------------

In particular I would like to thank Todd Lowe for his various
suggestions for features and improvments during development as
well as the entire department 9D44 at Bell Northern Research
for their input. I would also like to thank Daniel J. Neades
(author of pmps) for his help with various OS/2 programming
questions and well as looking over the final beta. Lastly
I wish to acknowledge the students at Acadia University using
OS/2 who beta tested the program, in particular Trevor Porter.



Disclaimer
----------

PMkill is freeware and as such you may freely distribute it as
long as you include the document file as well as the binary. As
freeware you take full responsibily for using the program and I
am in no way responsible for any damage or loss you may suffer
either directly or indirectly from using this program.



Comments
--------

If you have any suggestions or comments feel free to contact
me. Although this is freeware any contributions toward futrue
OS/2 program development will be greatly appreciated.
