pike.git/doc/builtin/kill:3:      SYNTAX    int kill(int pid, int signal)      DESCRIPTION    Kill sends a signal to another process. If something goes wrong    -1 is returned, 0 otherwise.       Some signals and their supposed purpose:    -  SIGHUP Hangup, sent to process when user logs out -  SIGINT Interrupt, normally sent by ctrl-c -  SIGQUIT Quit, sent by ctrl-\ -  SIGILL Illegal instruction -  SIGTRAP Trap, mostly used by debuggers -  SIGABRT Aborts process, can be caught, used by uLPC whenever something +  SIGHUP Hangup, sent to process when user logs out +  SIGINT Interrupt, normally sent by ctrl-c +  SIGQUIT Quit, sent by ctrl-\ +  SIGILL Illegal instruction +  SIGTRAP Trap, mostly used by debuggers +  SIGABRT Aborts process, can be caught, used by Pike whenever something    goes seriously wrong. -  SIGBUS Bus error -  SIGFPE Floating point error (such as division by zero) -  SIGKILL Really kill a process, cannot be caught -  SIGUSR1 Signal reserved for whatever you want to use it for. -  SIGSEGV Segmentation fault, caused by accessing memory where you -  shouldn't. Should never happen to uLPC. -  SIGUSR2 Signal reserved for whatever you want to use it for. -  SIGALRM Signal used for timer interrupts. -  SIGTERM Termination signal -  SIGSTKFLT Stack fault -  SIGCHLD Child process died -  SIGCONT Continue suspended -  SIGSTOP Stop process -  SIGSTP Suspend process -  SIGTTIN tty input for background process -  SIGTTOU tty output for background process -  SIGXCPU Out of cpu -  SIGXFSZ File size limit exceeded -  SIGPROF Profile trap -  SIGWINCH Window change signal +  SIGBUS Bus error +  SIGFPE Floating point error (such as division by zero) +  SIGKILL Really kill a process, cannot be caught +  SIGUSR1 Signal reserved for whatever you want to use it for. +  SIGSEGV Segmentation fault, caused by accessing memory where you +  shouldn't.
