kill, slay, broke - print commands to kill processes
SYNOPSISkill name ...
slay name ...
broke [ user ]
Kill prints commands that will cause all processes called name and
owned by the current user to be terminated. Use the send command of
rio(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. The slay command prints commands to do this.
Broke prints commands that will cause all processes in the Broken state
and owned by user (by default, 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
commands printed by broke lets the system reclaim the resources used by
the broken processes.
