Task Killer for OS/2. This application also has a WPS class developed for it.
WatchCat is a program for OS/2 2.x / 3.x that makes it possible to recover from system hangs that block keyboard and mouse input. WatchCat can be activated by a hotkey or a hardware switch.
- WatchCat's keyboard activation mechanism is not compatible with the use of PS/2 (bus-) mice.
- In such cases, use other mechanisms.
- WatchCat might disable some APM functionality.
- Turn off WatchCat with the WPS object to enter hibernation or suspend mode.
- On some computers, there are keyboard problems with the keyboard activation mechanism.
- This is due to a timing problem in OS/2's keyboard drivers.
- Use the non-device-driver hotkey mechanism or choose an alternative input method like joystick.
- The new Process Manipulation Center lets you kill processes by forcing them to generate a breakpoint exception, kill, suspend, resume and change priorities of single threads of running processes.
- The unregistered version of WatchCat only features a demo version of this tool (you can use above features only five times).
- WatchCat can be activated by CTRL-ALT-DEL. See the documentation.
