kill - terminate process(es)

kill [-g] pid
kill [-g] module


The kill command terminates the process (numeric argument) or module (non-numeric argument) by sending a kill string to the corresponding ctl file. Processes running a named module are identified by their status file.

This option specifies that the message be killgrp, requesting that all processes in the process group (see pctl - process control in Chapter 8) be terminated.
