computer crap

kill scripts

Could someone more familiar with the lj codebase please explain to me the differences in the several process killer scripts in /home/lj/bin ?

So far I've found: qkill, hkill, killfast, and pkill.

They seem to yield the same results, but are all written differently. I'm a little too lazy to go through and dissect every one, and look up the meanings of all the command line flags they use.
