KILL(1) 			     General Commands Manual				  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 81/2(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 com-
       mands printed by broke lets the system reclaim the resources used by the broken processes.
