Is there an R function to kill a process? I found one in package fork but it is specific to UNIX and I want something that also works on Windows. The XP console command, taskkill, will do it so I can easily get the effect but it won't work on other Windows systems, even 2000 and NT. I found a free utility pskill.exe by googling around that does work across 2000/NT/XP but was still wondering about something more general in R.
