kill, broke - print commands to kill processes
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.
