What OS? In UNIX you can run process, create child, and then kill parrent with "-9" signal. It will create "zombie" process - process without parrent process.

Some details. I'm running in Linux. I'm looking to create Zombies that do not die correctly when their parent process is killed. Normally the OS should take care of them, but every once-n-awhile we get a process or two that don't die. One of my people wrote a Zombie hunter program, but I now need a way to test it.
