:kill

Arguments: &optional process &rest processes

This command uses process-kill to kill each identified process. Confirmation is sought if the user tries to kill the last running process. If there are processes that a listener process has left in an arrested state, :kill of that listener is disallowed and a warning is given. If the focused process is killed, the listener process is automatically refocused. This new focus is printed before :kill returns. (See the description of the command :focus above for a discussion of which process will become the focused process.)

The process and processes arguments can specify as many processes as desired. Each argument can be:

Strings are compared with process names. All processes whose names exactly match the string are considered matches. If no process name exactly matches, then all processes whose names contain the string as a substring are considered matches. (For example, if there are processes with names "Listener 1" and "Initial Lisp Listener", both match the string "ener".) For this command, multiple matches of parts of names with the string are considered ambiguous and the command fails with a diagnostic.

Strings which match no process cause the command to fail with a diagnostic.

The minimal abbreviation of :kill is :ki.
