O/P same as on screen

Code:
#Random Scripts 4
#Desc:
clear
  echo "1. To see all processes currently running on the system"
  echo "2. To kill any given process"
  echo "Choose between the two"
  read x
  case $x in
  "1")print `ps aux`;;
  "2") echo "Choose a process to be killed"
     read y
check=`ps ax | grep $y`
echo $check;;
  *) echo "You selected wrong option";;
esac

Two things :

(1). I need output when the user enters '1' same as we get when we run command "ps ax" on the comand line.

(2). I want to kill a process which user enters in the variable "Y". But the problem I am facing is I am not able to get how to check for the database session.

Code:
amitj:/home/fnb/amitj/scripts1> ps ax |grep isql
 397410 pts/13 A     0:00 grep isql
 495652 pts/15 A     0:00 isql -Utcs2dev -STCSDEV2 - -c -w300

I will enter 'Utcs2dev' as variable in Y but then how to get the process ID from it , and then only I can use kill -9 PID.

Advise !

NAME
echo - echo arguments to standard output SYNOPSIS
/usr/ucb/echo [-n] [argument] DESCRIPTION
echo writes its arguments, separated by BLANKs and terminated by a NEWLINE, to the standard output. echo is useful for producing diagnostics in command files and for sending known data into a pipe, and for displaying the contents of envi- ronment variables. For example, you can use echo to determine how many subdirectories below the root directory (/) is your current directory, as follows: o echo your current-working-directory's full pathname o pipe the output through tr to translate the path's embedded slash-characters into space-characters o pipe that output through wc -w for a count of the names in your path. example% /usr/bin/echo "echo $PWD | tr '/' ' ' | wc -w" See tr(1) and wc(1) for their functionality. The shells csh(1), ksh(1), and sh(1), each have an echo built-in command, which, by default, will have precedence, and will be invoked if the user calls echo without a full pathname. /usr/ucb/echo and csh's echo() have an -n option, but do not understand back-slashed escape characters. sh's echo(), ksh's echo(), and /usr/bin/echo, on the other hand, understand the black-slashed escape characters, and ksh's echo() also understands a as the audible bell character; however, these commands do not have an -n option. OPTIONS
-n Do not add the NEWLINE to the output. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWscpu | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
csh(1), echo(1), ksh(1), sh(1), tr(1), wc(1), attributes(5) NOTES
The -n option is a transition aid for BSD applications, and may not be supported in future releases. SunOS 5.11 3 Aug 1994 echo(1B)
