I just went to run cruisecontrol only to find that it's already running when I thought it shut itself down. For some reason I can't find the pid for cruisecontrol with ps -e in order to use kill. How can I kill this?

Looking under /my_install_path/cruisecontrol/ I found the file "" which contains the PID that I needed to kill.

$ cat
$ kill 43179

or more succinctly

$ kill `cat`
