    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to find the difference between the following commands:

    stop, kill and killall.

    Yet so far without any luck.

    Can someone give me a small explanation or a good link to a website?

    Thx a lot in advance

    Also check out pgrep and pkill for finding and killing programs. These are part of the procps package which I believe is always installed.
