KILL(I) 8/18/73 KILL(I) NAME kill - do in an unwanted process SYNOPSIS kill processid ... DESCRIPTION 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 superuser. SEE ALSO ps(I), sh(I) BUGS Clearly people should only be allowed to kill processes owned by them, and having the same typewriter is neither necessary nor sufficient.
