skill sends signals to processes given any combination of user names, ttys, commands, and pids and snice changes the priority of processes (given the same).

They are similar to kill(1) and renice(8), but the commandline is order-independent. There are also verbose, search, and interactive modes of operation.

Both programs run under a variety of operating systems, including:

Apple Darwin 5.4
AT&T SysVR4, SysVR4.2, SysVR4.2MP
4.2BSD, 4.3BSD, 4.4BSD (and many PC variants)
Cygwin 1.5 (uses Linux)
Mach 2.6, 3.0
DEC Ultrix 2.2, 4.1-2
DEC AXP OSF/1
DEC/Compaq Tru64 Unix V3.2D-2, T3.2F-1, V4.0, V5.0-1B
Encore UMAX 4.2
FreeBSD 2.0-2, 3.1, 4.4-11, 5.0-3, 6.0-1
HP-UX 6.5, 7.0, 8.0, 9.0-5, 10.1-20, 11.0-23
IBM AIX 3.1-2, 4.1, 5.2
IBM AOS 4.3
Linux 1.0-2, 2.1, 2.2, 2.4
MIPS UMIPS 2.1
NeXT OS 1.0, 2.1
NetBSD 1.3-5
OpenBSD 2.6, 3.0
Pyramid OSx 4.0
SCO UnixWare 7.0.1
SGI Irix 3.3, 4.0, 5.2, 5.3, 6.2, 6.5
Sequent Dynix 3.0-1
SunOS 2, 3, 4.0-1, 5.1-10

What's New in This Release:

skill and snice now act on each process only once (for systems like BSD that return the same Process ID multiple times, once for each instantiated thread).
Support has also been added for FreeBSD 6.2 and HP-UX 11.31.
