NAME            kill -- terminate process with extreme prejudice

SYNOPSIS        /usr/adm/kill processnumber

DESCRIPTION     After ps (q.v.) has given you the unique ID of a

                process, you can terminate it by this command.  A

                core image is produced in the process's working

SEE ALSO        ps (VIII)


BUGS            If the process has executed sys nice (II) and

                there is another process which has not, but which

                loops, the first process cannot be done in prop-

                erly, since it has to be swapped in so as cooper-

                ate in its own murder.

                It would also be nice if ordinary people could

                kill their own processes.
