'man kill' gives you the detailed answer.

What 'kill' does is sending a signal to the process with the given PID; it is SIGTERM by default, but can also be any POSIX signal. If the process doesn't react to SIGTERM, try with SIGINT, SIGHUP and SIGKILL, in that order.

Hi Shwetha,

I think are you looking for the solution of this query.

To force termination of a job whose process ID is given.

Ans. : kill -9 (process id)

Note : if you know the process id, then your can terminate that job by using this command.

kill 1239, where 1239 is process id..

well if you are pursuing MCA from IGNOU and try to solve the TMA assig. then you can email me at : geinehelpline@yahoo.com

Regrads,
Mukesh.
