KILL(1)								       KILL(1)

       kill, slay, broke - print commands to kill processes

       kill 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.
