Hello Computer folks, I have a process "P1" that is ran using Runtime.getRuntime().exec() command. P1 spawns numerous child process "p's". When I kill P1 it disappears from the active process list using the "ps" command however its children are alive and well. How can I first identify the children spawned by "P1" and then proceed to kill them when the parent is killed??? Thank you, Diego
