Send a signal to a job

About this task

On most versions of UNIX, signal names and numbers are listed in the kill(1) or signal(2) man pages. On Windows, only customized applications are able to process job control messages that are specified with the -s option.


Run bkill -s signal job_id, where signal is either the signal name or the signal number:
bkill -s TSTP 3421
Job <3421> is being signaled

The preceding example sends the TSTP signal to job 3421.
