Running the test suite in a self-cleaning Windows process job group

Hello everyone,

I wrote a small utility program called group-job [1] to run the test suite in a Windows process job group that automatically causes all processes to be killed if the main process ends or dies.

Example usage within a Windows continuous integration environment:

group-job.exe C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin\sh.exe -l -i -c ^"\^"./tests/\^“ …^"

If group-job.exe or sh.exe ends or dies, zombie processes spawned from them are killed automatically.

I figured this might be of use or interest for other people running Windows builds or tests.

Best regards,
