Recommended Usage (Windows)

The recommended way to try the above code is to save it in a file named In the same directory as, create a batch file called procmon.bat and place the following text in there:

This assumes that the console version of the IronPython executable (ipy.exe) is in your PATH environment variable. Next, just type procmon notepad.exe on the Command Prompt. If you close the launched Notepad instance then a new one will be launched shortly after. This will keep happening until the IronPython script is stopped by simply pressing ENTER at its console.

Sample Output

Below is an example of what the output from the IronPython script could look like. Notice that three question marks (???) where the owner could not be determined.
