Half-baked idea: Kill SIGOK

For more half-baked ideas, see the ideas tag

I’m sure you’ve sat there waiting for some long compile to finish. It’s just started the tests, but you don’t want it to do the tests, just finish compiling dammit!

My half-baked idea is this: sending a special signal to a process (SIGOK) should kill the process, but the process should return 0 (ie. non-error exit).
