KILL(I) 8/18/73 KILL(I)
kill - do in an unwanted process
-signo ] processid ...
Kills the specified processes. The processid of each
asynchronous process started with `&' is reported by the
shell. Processid's can also be found by using ps (I).
The killed process must have been started from the same
typewriter as the current user, unless he is the super-user.
If a signal number preceded by ``-'' is given as first
argument, that signal is sent instead of kill (see signal
ps (I), sh (I), signal (II)
Clearly people should only be allowed to kill processes
owned by them, and having the same typewriter is neither
necessary nor sufficient.
