Description

• 

Important: The process package has been deprecated. Use the superseding package Threads instead.

• 

The kill command kills one or more processes that were created with fork.

• 

This can be useful if several child processes were created to work in parallel, one has completed, and the rest are to be terminated.

• 

kill can also be used to kill other processes if one knows their process IDs.

• 

The kill function is only available on platforms that support true concurrent processing (for example, UNIX).

• 

The command with(process,kill) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
