We all know the
kill command in Linux (
kill -9 if some more power is needed
;) ), but what I don't understand is what are the other numbers for?
These are the numbers I know:
kill -1→ Hangup (Closing window)
kill -2→ Interrupt (Control + C)
kill -9→ Kill
kill -15→ Terminate
What are the other numbers for like 5 or 12? Is 15 the highest or can I type
I tried other numbers and some of them worked, but that still does not give me any understanding of what is going on under the hood or the use case.
Note: Just to be sure this is only related to Linux (and Unix)
