Hi,

I'm looking for a way to forcibly terminate a process started with a
pipe.  That is, when I run:

   file = IO.popen("sleep 300", "r+")
   file.close

The file.close command just hangs and waits for the sleep command to
finish.  Is there some way I can instead say, "I don't care if it's
finished or not, kill the program now and close the pipe"?

Thanks,
   Jared
