|tid||Integer task identifier of the PVM process to be killed (not yourself).|
Integer status code returned by the routine.
Values less than zero indicate an error.
The routine pvm_kill sends a terminate (SIGTERM) signal to the PVM process identified by tid. In the case of multiprocessors the terminate signal is replaced with a host dependent method for killing a process. If pvm_kill is successful, info will be 0. If some error occurs then info will be < 0.
pvm_kill is not designed to kill the calling process. To kill yourself in C call pvm_exit() followed by exit(). To kill yourself in Fortran call pvmfexit followed by stop.
C: info = pvm_kill( tid );
Fortran: CALL PVMFKILL( TID, INFO )
These error conditions can be returned by pvm_kill
PvmBadParam giving an invalid tid value. PvmSysErr pvmd not responding.
