System.Process- introduces the new field "create_group :: Bool" in the 
datatype CreateProcess, which ensures that the process (and its children) is 
spawned in an new process group.

This function is also in System.Process- and does indeed, what i want 
to do!

I thought so, but the means justified the ends (for me , in this case). But now 
i don't need System.Posix.Process at all, since all i need is provided by the 
new System.Process-

Thank you for pointing out the function "interruptProcessGroupOf" which lead 
me to this new version of System.Process.

Kind regards,
