KILL(1)                                                   KILL(1)

     NAME
          kill, broke - print commands to kill processes

     SYNOPSIS
          kill name

          broke

     DESCRIPTION
          Kill prints commands that will cause all processes called
          name and owned by the current user to be terminated.  Use
          the send command of 8½(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.

          Broke prints commands that will cause all processes in the
          Broken state and owned by 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.
