killprog is a fairly simple Perl routine that kills a process on a Unix machine based on the argument passed to it killprog uses the UCB ps -aux to match the argument with one or more processes belonging to the user issuing the command. (Note that this requires some caution, since running killprog net will kill all processes with "net" in their names which belong to the user.)

Get killprog
