Terminate one or more process IDs . You must own the process or be a privileged user. This command is similar to the kill command that is built into the Bourne, Korn, and C shells. A minus sign before an ID specifies a process group ID. (The built-in version doesn't allow process group IDs, but it does allow job IDs.)



List the signal names. (Used by itself.)

- signal

The signal number (from ps -f ) or name (from kill -l ). With a signal number of 9, the kill is absolute.
