8.11.9.158 Kill Intrinsic (subroutine)

     CALL Kill(Pid, Signal, Status)

Pid: INTEGER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Signal: INTEGER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Status: INTEGER(KIND=1); OPTIONAL; scalar; INTENT(OUT).

Intrinsic groups: unix.

Description:

Sends the signal specified by Signal to the process Pid. If the Status argument is supplied, it contains 0 on success or a nonzero error code upon return. See kill(2).

Some non-GNU implementations of Fortran provide this intrinsic as only a function, not as a subroutine, or do not support the (optional) Status argument.

For information on other intrinsics with the same name: See Kill Intrinsic (function).
