killall5


SYNOPSIS
       killall5  -signalnumber  [-o  omitpid[,omitpid..]]   [-o omitpid[,omit-
       pid..]..]

DESCRIPTION
       killall5 is the SystemV killall command. It sends a signal to all  pro-
       cesses  except  kernel threads and the processes in its own session, so
       it won't kill the shell that is running the script it was called  from.
       Its  primary  (only)  use is in the rc scripts found in the /etc/init.d
       directory.

OPTIONS
       -o omitpid
              Tells killall5 to omit processes with that process id.

NOTES
       killall5 can also be invoked as pidof, which  is  simply  a  (symbolic)
       link to the killall5 program.

EXIT STATUS
       The  program  return  zero  if  it killed processes.  It return 2 if no
       process were killed, and 1 if it  was  unable  to  find  any  processes
       (/proc/ is missing).

SEE ALSO
       halt(8), reboot(8), pidof(8)
