Please note that nobody should use the 'killall' command in other environments than Linux-like and expect the same behaviour. The original System V killall command does exactly what its name says, it terminates all processes. This was used by the shutdown routines. Infact, the Linux guys took the name of a widely common command, and gave it a new meaning. After they saw their mistake, they made the original command available under 'killall5'.
