End Process???
on Apr 14, 2005 at 3:47:35 am

Hello,

I recorded this sound file in sound studio that I was editing and the program spun into an endless loop. If I force quit the program I loose the unrestorable sound record. Is there a way to end processes in OS X so that I don't have to close the program but can save my recorded file.

Thank you for any help.

Most likely not as the thread is being spawned by the program and probably just using its resources. If it spawns a new Process ID, then it is easy to do using the Activity Monitor. I don't know of anything simple that would allow you to kill a thread.

Thanks for your help.

I ended up force quiting sound studio.
Luckly when I reopened it, it restored the file from the scratch disk automatically, so I didn't have to worry at all :P
But for programs that don't automatically do that apple should make a function the quits threads after they lock up a program for a day.

Thanks again,

Abraham
