      History of TGMDev KillProcess

Here is an outline of the history of TGMDev KillProcess. At the real beginning, this application was requested by a friend who was (and still is) a brilliant system engineer. I got caught up in the game and decided to go on. The very first releases were distributed somewhat confidentially but, with comments from the Web, the application evolved gradually to finally give (hopefully ..) a useful utility ...

Thanks to all people that help improving KillProcess 4.3 by sending useful comments, providing bright ideas and giving nice words on this piece of work....
