    Command:

    snice

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           skill [signal to send] [options] process selection criteria
           snice [new priority] [options] process selection criteria
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           These tools are probably obsolete and unportable. The command syntax is
           poorly defined. Consider using the killall, pkill, and  pgrep  commands
           instead.
    
           The  default  signal  for skill is TERM. Use -l or -L to list available
           signals.  Particularly useful signals include  HUP,  INT,  KILL,  STOP,
           CONT,  and  0.   Alternate  signals  may be specified in three ways: -9
           -SIGKILL -KILL.
    
           The default priority for snice is +4. (snice +4 ...)  Priority  numbers
           range  from  +20 (slowest) to -20 (fastest).  Negative priority numbers
           are restricted to administrative users.
    
    
    

    GENERAL OPTIONS

           -f   fast mode          This is not currently useful.
           -i   interactive use    You will be asked to approve  each
                                   action.
           -v   verbose output     Display information about selected
                                   processes.
           -w   warnings enabled   This is not currently useful.
           -n   no action          This only displays the process ID.
           -V   show version       Displays version of program.
    
    
    

    PROCESS SELECTION OPTIONS

           Selection criteria can be: terminal, user, pid, command.   The  options
           below  may  be  used  to  ensure  correct interpretation.  Do not blame
           Albert for this interesting interface.
    
           -t   The next argument is a terminal (tty or pty).
           -u   The next argument is a username.
           -p   The next argument is a process ID number.
           -c   The next argument is a command name.
