The shp-kill command terminates a D3 printer shared with UNIX and all the associated processes. Users who do not own the process and are not root, will not be able to kill the printer.
For Windows: Not supported
|D3 printer number, as specified in the startshp command.
This command executes the command sp-kill dprinter.number.
It relies on the existence of the log files created in /var/tmp/lppick by the startshp command. The shp-kill command can:
Issue an sp-kill of the D3 printer process.
Send SIGTERM to the underlying D3 process, waiting up to 5 seconds before sending a SIGKILL.
Ensure the associated lppick filter process is terminated. If this is not the case, a SIGTERM followed by a SIGKILL is sent to this process.
Verify the user-ID issuing the command as either the one that owns the process or root.
