Easier Killing

Who are you?

"I take the long road" -guy (this has been me for years and years)

  1. ps -ax | grep <something describing my process>
  2. look for the <pid>
  3. type kill -s 9 <pid>

"I made a shortcut" -guy

Make a clever script which uses ps | grep output, cut, awk or whatever to get the pid for the kill.

"I use the existing shortcut" -guy

pkill -9 -f  <something describing my process>

or pgrep first if I'm insecure about the regex
