Send SIGINT to console app

Recommended Posts


I have a console application that only exits cleanly if an interrupt signal is sent to it (for example, a Ctrl+C keystroke.) Since the script itself was what started the application, I have the process name and PID of the application, and it would be fairly easy to get an hWnd of its console window. However, since ControlSend($hWnd, "", "+c") does not work (this is a known problem; apparently, console windows check the physical state of modifier keys, thus while you can send all-lowercase strings such as "command" to a console window, the WinAPI calls used for ControlSend() don't have any effect on Shift, Control, Alt, etc.), is there another way I can send a SIGINT to this application? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
