     KILL(1)                                                   KILL(1)

          kill, slay, broke - print commands to kill processes

          kill name ...

          slay name ...

          broke [ user ]

          Kill prints commands that will cause all processes called
          name and owned by the current user to be terminated.  Use
          the send command of rio(1), or pipe the output of kill into
          rc(1) to execute the commands.

          Kill suggests sending a kill note to the process; the same
          message delivered to the process's ctl file (see proc(3)) is
          a surer, if heavy handed, kill, but is necessary if the
          offending process is ignoring notes.  The slay command
          prints commands to do this.

          Broke prints commands that will cause all processes in the
          Broken state and owned by user (by default, the current
          user) to go away.  When a process dies because of an error
          caught by the system, it may linger in the Broken state to
          allow examination with a debugger.  Executing the commands
          printed by broke lets the system reclaim the resources used
          by the broken processes.
