Closing a process remotely - Inetread?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am attempting to write a script that looks at a webpage for a value (in example "shutdown" would display as simple text), and then uses that to shutdown a process.

I had one before years ago, unfortunately I have completely forgotten how I came about it.

Something very basic I've been trying..

If InetRead("http://konzine.com/lol" ="shutdown") Then
  ProcessClose("notepad.exe")
EndIf

Any ideas?

Seems this is coming back to me faster than I expected, so I'll just keep documenting it until I run into another problem;

For keeping the script looping I am using While 1 WEnd, and using sleep to rerun the script every 60 seconds or so. Right now I have it set to 3 seconds for testing purposes;

While 1
If InetRead("http://konzine.com/")="shutdown" Then
  ProcessClose("notepad.exe")
Else
  MsgBox( 4096, "Test", "This box will time out in 3 seconds", 3)
EndIf
Sleep(3000)
WEnd

Seems to be working ok. Since I have basically completed the fundamentals of the script I am now working on features here. This little update checks to see if notepad is running and if not Produces a MessageBox (this could easily be substituted with a sleep.)

While 1
If ProcessExists ("notepad.exe") Then
If InetRead("http://konzine.com/lol")="shutdown" Then
ProcessClose("notepad.exe")

EndIf
 
Else
  MsgBox( 4096, "Test", "This box will time out in 3 seconds", 3)
 
EndIf
 
Sleep(3000)
WEnd
