C int info = pvm_kill( int tid )
Fortran call pvmfkill( tid, info )
Integer task identifier of the PVM process to be killed
Integer status code returned by the routine.
Values less than zero indicate an error.
DESCRIPTIONThe routine pvm_kill sends a terminate (SIGTERM) signal to the PVM process identified by tid. In the case of multiprocessors the terminate signal is replaced with a host dependent method for killing a process. If pvm_kill is successful, info will be 0. If some error occurs then info will be < 0.
pvm_kill is not designed to kill the calling process. To kill yourself in C call pvm_exit() followed by exit(). To kill yourself in Fortran call pvmfexit followed by stop.
C: info = pvm_kill( tid ); Fortran: CALL PVMFKILL( TID, INFO )
ERRORSThese error conditions can be returned by pvm_kill
- giving an invalid tid value.
- pvmd not responding.
