Description

I programmed a app that allows killing processes by their name instead of only their PID. Its written in python, maybe someone takes a look at it and may improve it.

It looks like a killall command. Is there a difference?

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by leszek

Killall will kill every instance of a application. This will only kill one.

Why make a new command for this? Why not enhance the existing kill to also be able to take a process name like BeOS's did?

comment:4 Changed 10 years ago by leszek

Didn't know that the kill command in BeOS could also kill something by entering its name. I think it should be seperated apps, as it is common in the unix world, and should no one confuse.
