:: Redirect the line we just displayed to a temporary batch file.
:: By first feeding the line to TIME, we make sure the displayed
:: line will be preceded by a fixed string (Enter the new time:),
:: which makes it easier to store the FIRST word in the line (the
:: process ID) in an environment variable PID.
TLIST | FIND /I " %1 " | FIND /I /V "CMD.EXE" | TIME | FIND /I "%1" > TEMP.BAT
:: Create another temporary batch file, ENTER.BAT.
:: IMPORTANT: The string "Enter the new time:" is, of course,
:: language dependant, so modify and rename this batch
:: file accordingly if you use a non-English NT version.
> ENTER.BAT ECHO @ECHO OFF
>> ENTER.BAT ECHO SET PID=%%4
:: Now call TEMP.BAT, which in turn call ENTER.BAT, which sets the
:: value of environment variable PID to the wanted process ID.
:: Kill the process by its process ID.
:: Clean up the mess.
:: And quit.
:: Display help screen
