    Signal in windows

    i a writing one socket program and in my program I am creating child processes and executing different applications.

    If any process killed, i need to send signal to parent process like unix.

    Is it possible in windows.

    If possible give some examples.

    Also, in windows we can use createProcess() like fork() in unix.

    but, is it correct to send info to parent process like unix.

    With WSA you may be able to use WM_SOCKET_NOTIFY msgs to monitor the status of the child processes.
