Readme file for KillWinGUI 

KillWinGUI 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.  It is intended to be used
on windows that are of crashed programs and it does not close
the windows 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 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 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.

Hope you find it useful.

KNOWN BUGS:

If the window you are trying to close is really screwed,
KillWinGUI will also crash.  I may fix this in the future. (Of
course if it crashes, you can use KillWinGUI to kill the window
:-) ).

Should now at least have a decent attempt at closing Shell
Windows.
Added app icon in archive.  Icon kindly created by Björn
Schröder.

V1.1
Added position and size of window display as requested.
