in reply to killing linux process with CGI

First off you should never be sending a signal 9 to a process unless prior attempts with other signals have falled (as has been pointed out to you in this thread) and secondly the parameter you need to send should have been a positive integer not a negative one. See kill.

When you are passing the signal number from the shell the "-" signifies an optional parementer is being passed, not the signedness of the number of the signal.

choroba knows the situation. At work, unit tests run for 30 minutes, and integration and end-to-end tests take almost one hour.
