I've always used CTRL+4 to kill console apps... ALT-F4 kills the window, but you'll still need to find the jop PID and kill it if you close it that way....

    Either way, kill -KILL <pid> will slay the application hands down.

    Though you should only use it as a last resort, after trying HUP and QUIT.

    I find it works for me to just have "kill" followed by the number. Does it make a difference if we put in "pid" or no?
