KILLALL5(8)               (04 Nov 2003)               KILLALL5(8)

     NAME
          killall5 -- send a signal to all processes.

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

     DESCRIPTION
          killall5 is the SystemV killall command. It sends a signal
          to all processes 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)
