bool proc_terminate(resource $process[, int $signal = 15])
process (created using proc_open()) that it should terminate. proc_terminate() returns immediately and does not wait for the process to terminate.
proc_terminate() allows you terminate the process and continue with other tasks. You may poll the process (to see if it has stopped yet) by using the proc_get_status() function.
Returns the termination status of the process that was run.
- resource $process: The proc_open() resource that will be closed.
- int $signal [ = 15]: This optional parameter is only useful on POSIX operating systems; you may specify a signal to send to the process using the kill(2) system call. The default is SIGTERM.
