Readme file for Exorcist Exorcist is an application that will show you all the windows on the public screen (usually Workbench) and allow you to kill one of the windows by selecting one. Also it will show you any other screens and allow you to close them. It is intended to be used on windows or screens that are of crashed programs and it does not close the windows or screens in a particularly 'friendly' way. The idea was taken from the little application KillWin created by Dave McKinstry. I found this application so useful that I decided to write a (slightly) more friendly version. The biggest advantage of this app is that it allows you to identify the window or screen that you are going to close (even if it has no name). DISCLAIMER: This is meant as a development tool for killing (my own) apps that have crashed and have left a window or screen behind. Obviously, this is not a very elegant thing to have to do and ideally it should be handled by AmigaOS (sigh, maybe one day). The author accepts no responsibility or damage to anything caused directly or indirectly from the use of this application. I just thought it might be useful for some other people so have decided to upload it. In fact many people have now said so - I am grateful for the feedback. Hope you find it useful.

Email suggestions and comments to: exorcist()Dragons-fire.co.uk KNOWN BUGS: If the window or screen you are trying to close is really screwed, Exorcist will also crash. I may fix this in the future. (Of course if it crashes, you can use Exorcist to kill the window :-) ). HISTORY: V2.1 (14-Aug-2009) Fixed bug in window size storage code. It appears that setting then regetting the window sizes using WA_Height and WA_Width doesn't get you what you set the window to in the first place. Changed to read WA_InnerHeight and WA_InnerWidth instead. V2.0 Renamed to Exorcist !! :-) because added experimental(!) support for closing screens as well as windows V1.2 Should now at least have a decent attempt at closing Shell Windows. Added app icon in archive. Icon kindly created by Bj¿rn Schr¿der. V1.1 Added position and size of window display as requested. V1.0 Initial Release.
