    8.35: How do I close a process's filehandle without waiting for it to complete?

    Assuming your system supports such things, just send an appropriate
    signal to the process (see "kill" in perlfunc). It's common to first
    send a TERM signal, wait a little bit, and then send a KILL signal to
    finish it off.

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.

    If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
    perlfaq.pod.
