KILL(I)                       2/8/75                      KILL(I)



NAME
     kill - terminate a process

SYNOPSIS
     kill [ -signo ] processid ...

DESCRIPTION
     Kills  the  specified processes.  The process number of each
     asynchronous process started with `&'  is  reported  by  the
     Shell.  Process numbers can also be found by using ps(I).

     If process number 0 is used, then all processes belonging to
     the current user and associated with the same control  type-
     writer are killed.

     The killed process must belong to the current user unless he
     is the super-user.

     If a signal number preceded by ``-'' is given as first argu-
     ment, that signal is sent instead of kill (see signal(II)).
