Detect external application exit

P: n/a
Hi,
I have a program that monitors a few running applications. This
monitoring program does not itself start these running applications. My
question is how can the monitoring program detect that a running application
has been closed without doing some kind of polling?

Thanks,
Steve

I have considered such ideas as presented in 'Check to see if Program Name
is running', but this would require polling of some type, usually with a
timer. I would like to catch an event, but since the monitoring program is
not starting the the applications being monitored, setting up an event is
not an option, I don't think.
