Kill Command BETTER
That night, Drifter and Mills discuss their pasts and Bukes' disdain for her. Later that night, Loftus is killed by the S.A.R. unit. The next day, they discover Loftus's body, left at the location of the first encounter. But this time, the drones have taken the team's original vantage point and fire on them, killing Hackett. They discover the A.I. is adapting and learning from them. Under cover of smoke grenades, Bukes flanks two drones, which immediately disperse. Later, the S.A.R. unit captures Cutbill and has him shot and killed by another drone. The drones attack the group again and Bukes and Mills are separated from Drifter, Robinson and Goodwin. That night, the S.A.R. unit discovers Bukes and an unconscious Mills; it "connects" with Mills and leaves.
The next day, the team attempts to exit the training area, but they are attacked with smoke grenades and gunfire. Drifter is shot and pinned down by the S.A.R. unit. Bukes kills Drifter as a coup de grace before the S.A.R. unit is able to. The team escapes into the barrier complex and discovers that the A.I. has killed all of the employees. Mills activates another S.A.R. unit to learn that S.A.R-003 reprogrammed the A.I. to use lethal force to improve soldier motivation and has ordered the soldiers to Harbinger I on its own. S.A.R-003 and other units break through the barrier door as the remaining team escapes through the back. Mills discovers an EMP device which can be used to stop the original S.A.R. unit but could also kill her or wipe her mind clean.
Bukes, Mills, Robinson, and Goodwin place explosives to prepare for a siege. The following day, A.I. drones attack the facility. The team wipes out more than half of the drones, but Robinson is killed in the ensuing gunfight. As S.A.R-003 approaches the team, Mills detonates the EMP, incapacitating herself and the drone. The S.A.R. unit reawakens and attacks Bukes and Mills. Mills remote-controls Robinson's sniper rifle gun in the building to destroy the S.A.R. unit; S.A.R. however uploads its program into Mills before it shuts down and Mills loses consciousness. Hours later, a tiltrotor arrives to rescue the survivors. As Bukes and Goodwin approach the aircraft, Mills reawakens with S.A.R-003's mission protocol.
In Unix and Unix-like operating systems, kill is a command used to send a signal to a process. By default, the message sent is the termination signal, which requests that the process exit. But kill is something of a misnomer; the signal sent may have nothing to do with process killing. The kill command is a wrapper around the kill() system call, which sends signals to processes or process groups on the system, referenced by their numeric process IDs (PIDs) or process group IDs (PGIDs). kill is always provided as a standalone utility as defined by the POSIX standard. However, most shells have built-in kill commands that may slightly differ from it.
There are many different signals that can be sent (see signal for a full list), although the signals in which users are generally most interested are SIGTERM ("terminate") and SIGKILL ("kill"). The default signal sent is SIGTERM. Programs that handle this signal can do useful cleanup operations (such as saving configuration information to a file) before quitting. However, many programs do not implement a special handler for this signal, and so a default signal handler is called instead. Other times, even a process that has a special handler has gone awry in a way that prevents it from properly handling the signal.
All signals except for SIGKILL and SIGSTOP ("stop") can be "intercepted" by the process, meaning that a special function can be called when the program receives those signals. The two exceptions SIGKILL and SIGSTOP are only seen by the host system's kernel, providing reliable ways of controlling the execution of processes. SIGKILL kills the process, and SIGSTOP pauses it until a SIGCONT ("continue") is received.
Unix provides security mechanisms to prevent unauthorized users from killing other processes. Essentially, for a process to send a signal to another, the owner of the signaling process must be the same as the owner of the receiving process or be the superuser.
Other useful signals include HUP, TRAP, INT, SEGV and ALRM. HUP sends the SIGHUP signal. Some daemons, including Apache and Sendmail, re-read configuration files upon receiving SIGHUP, so the kill command may be used for this too. A SIGINT signal can be generated very simply by pressing '"`UNIQ--templatestyles-0000000C-QINU`"'CTRL+C in most Unix shells. It is also common for CTRL+Z to be mapped to SIGTSTP ("terminal stop"), and for CTRL+\ (backslash) to be mapped to SIGQUIT, which can force a program to do a core dump.
Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and 7 include the command taskkill to terminate processes. The usual syntax for this command is taskkill /im "IMAGENAME". An "unsupported" version of kill was included in several releases of the Microsoft Windows Resource Kits available for Windows 98.
GNU versions of kill have been ported via Cygwin and run inside of the Unix environment subsystem that Microsoft Windows Services for UNIX provides (Microsoft acquired Windows Services for Unix wholesale via their purchase of Softway Systems and their Interix product on September 17, 1999).
Under Plan 9 from Bell Labs, the kill program does not actually perform this termination, nor does it take process IDs. Rather, it takes the actual names of processes and outputs the commands for rc, the shell used by Plan 9, to kill the process.
Because the Macintosh doesn't support the wildcards, use the file type to identify groups of files to delete. Use the MacID function to specify file type instead of repeating the command with separate file names. For example, the following statement deletes all TEXT files in the current folder.
The first step in killing the unresponsive process is locating it. There are two commands I use to locate a process: top and ps. Top is a tool every administrator should get to know. With top, you get a full listing of currently running process. From the command line, issue top to see a list of your running processes (Figure 1).
From this list you will see some rather important information. Say, for example, Chrome has become unresponsive. According to our top display, we can discern there are four instances of chrome running with Process IDs (PID) 3827, 3919, 10764, and 11679. This information will be important to have with one particular method of killing the process.
The only caveat to the above command is that it may not catch all of the running chrome processes. If, after running the above command, you issue the ps auxgrep chrome command and see remaining processes running, your best bet is to go back to the kill command and send signal 9 to terminate the process by PID.
Such an iconic hunter card. Once you realize that you're playing against an aggressive hunter deck, you just have to constantly play around it. It's truly a terrifying card once you're under 7 hp, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as when your hunter opponents use a kill command to kill a minion instead of your face.
On success, directly kills living targets, even if they are protected by a high-level Resistance effect or by a totem of undying, and issues the appropriate death message. Players and mobs killed this way drop loot, and slimes and magma cubes that are not of minimum size spawn smaller ones. Destroys boats, minecarts, loose items, paintings, armor stands, and experience orbs if they are targeted. Entities that have over 3.4021038 absorption points (1.7011038 absorption hearts) take damage from the /kill command but do not die.
Most processes have their own methods of shutting down. Unfortunately, processes can malfunction and not allow themselves to be shut down. If a running background process is unresponsive, it becomes necessary to use a command to kill it.
The ps command displays similar information to top, though it will not be in the form of an interface. Instead, the ps command provides a complete listing of running processes, formatted based on the tags you add.
The Linux command pgrep is a more complex way of finding a process. This command will return processes based on specific selection criteria, which is known as the pattern. The pattern is a regular expression, such as a*, where * would be a wildcard.
The killall command is used to kill processes by name. By default, it will send a SIGTERM signal. The killall command can kill multiple processes with a single command.
The killall -o 15m command will kill all processes that are older than 15 minutes, while the killall -y 15m command will kill all processes that are less than 15 minutes.
The pkill command is similar to the pgrep command, in that it will kill a process based on the process name, in addition to other qualifying factors. By default, pkill will send the SIGTERM signal.
The kill command will kill a single process at a time with the given process ID. It will send a SIGTERM signal indicating to a process to stop. It waits for the program to run its shutdown routine.
The kill -9 command sends a SIGKILL signal indicating to a service to shut down immediately. An unresponsive program will ignore a kill command, but it will shut down whenever a kill -9 command is issued. Use this command with caution. It bypasses the standard shutdown routine so any unsaved data will be lost.
For each pid operand, the kill utility shall perform actions equivalent to the kill() function defined in the System Interfaces volume of POSIX.1-2017 called with thefollowing arguments: 041b061a72
