killall(HUP, xterm); # SIGHUP all xterms

This module provides one function, killall(), which takes two parameters:
a signal name or number (see kill()) and a process pattern. This pattern

show it (ps is not used internally, instead a package called
Proc::ProcessTable is used).
killall searches the process table and sends that signal to all processes
which match the pattern. The return value is the number of processes that
were successfully signaled. If any kills failed, the $! variable
will be set based on that last one that failed (even if a successful kill
