tcl.shp-kill

Command tcl.shp-kill Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP/Unix
Category TCL (746)
Description terminates a Pick printer shared with Unix and all the associated processes.

"number" is the Pick printer number, as specified in the TCL 'startshp' command.

This command executes the TCL command 'sp-kill D number '.

This command relies on the existence of the log files created in "/tmp/lppick" by the 'startshp' command. It will:

- Do a regular 'sp-kill' of the Pick printer process,

- Send SIGTERM to the underlying Pick process, waiting up to 5 seconds before sending a SIGKILL.

- Make sure the associated 'lppick' filter process is terminated. If it is not the case, a SIGTERM followed by a SIGKILL will be sent to this process.
