KILL(1) KILL(1) NAME kill, slay, start, stop - print commands to manipulate processes SYNOPSIS kill name ... slay name ... start name ... stop name ... DESCRIPTION Kill prints commands that will cause all processes with name and owned by the current user to be terminated. Each com- mand is commented with an output line from ps(1) describing the process that would be killed. Use the send command of 9term(1), or pipe the output of kill into rc(1) or sh(1) to execute the commands. Kill suggests sending a Unix TERM signal to the process; sending a KILL signal is a surer, if heavy handed, kill, but is necessary if the offending process is ignoring signals. The slay command prints commands to do this. Stop prints commands to pause execution of processes by sending them the STOP signal. Start prints commands to restart stopped processes by send- ing them the CONT signal. SOURCE /bin SEE ALSO ps(1), notify(3) BUGS Stop and start should limit themselves to currently running or stopped processes.
