Read/kill processes

I read a set of processes with:
ps -eaf|grep oracleTRLV

The result is:
oracle 23253 1 0 15:14:11 ? 0:00 oracleTRLV (LOCAL=NO)
oracle 23301 1 0 15:15:07 ? 0:00 oracleTRLV (LOCAL=NO)
oracle 22914 1 0 15:11:19 ? 0:00 oracleTRLV (LOCAL=NO)

How to I kill the "oracleTRLV" ones? Is there an option for the "kill" command that allows me to do it?

Thank you.

If you can logon as root or as the oracle user you can kill those processes. Assuming killing them is actually a good idea, which you should check on FIRST:

ps -eaf|grep oracleTRLV |  \ 
while read one pid restofline
     kill -9 $pid

You can try something like that :

ps -eaf | grep oracleTRLV | while read ora_proc
     set `echo $ora_proc`
     kill $2
