KILLALL5(8) Linux System Administrator's Manual KILLALL5(8)
killall5 -- send a signal to all processes.
killall5 is the SystemV killall command. It sends a signal to all pro-
cesses except the processes in its own session, so it won't kill the
shell that is running the script it was called from. Its primary (only)
use is in the rc scripts found in the /etc/init.d directory.
