Linux Commands: Stop a process from running


kill-Linux Command

kill command- Stop a process from running

Syntax: kill [-s sigspec] [-n signum] [-sigspec] jobspec or pid
kill -l [exit_status]
Description: Most modern shells, Bash included, have a built-in kill function. In Bash, both signal names and numbers are accepted as options, and arguments may be job or process IDs. An exit status can be reported using the -l option: zero when at least one signal was successfully sent, non-zero if an error occurred.
Using the kill command from /usr/bin, your system might enable extra options, such as the ability to kill processes from other than your own user ID and specifying processes by name, like with pgrep and pkill.
Both kill commands send the TERM signal if none is given.
