       slay - kill all processes belonging to a user


       slay [-signal] name [name...]


       Slay  sends  given signal (KILL by default) to all processes belonging to user(s) given on
       the command line.  When called without arguments it displays short help.

       You can use -clean as a signal name, in  that  case  a  "clean  kill"  is  done,  that  is
       processes  are  first  sent TERM signal and after 10 seconds those that haven't terminated
       yet are killed with KILL


       There are no options.


       SLAY_BUTTHEAD - setting SLAY_BUTTHEAD to on puts  slay  into  Butt-head  mode  (which  has
       different  messages  than  normal mode).  Setting it to off puts it into normal mode. This
       environment variable overrides the setting from /etc/slay_mode


       /etc/slay_mode - contains keywords  describing  the  mode  slay  works  in,  separated  by

       mean  turns mean mode on. In mean mode attempts to slay people without root privileges are
       punished. This is the default.

       nice turns mean mode off.

       butthead switched slay to Butt-head messages mode.

       normal switches slay to normal messages mode. This is the default.

       You can only use one of mean/nice keywords and one of butthead/normal keywords.


       Unknown. If there are any report them to author and/or package maintainer.
