Killing all processes of a single user

To kill all processes a certain user is running, you may find slay really useful.

To use it:
# slay LOGIN
where LOGIN stands for the user login whose processes are to be killed.

It only uses kill to kill the processes, so it will work on any processes you have rights to kill.

Note: Older versions of slay were not able to manage well logins with more than 8 characters, so you had to use the first 8 characters of the login instead of the full login. Be careful of the logins you use! For example: myusers22 would be identical to myusers2, and so all users starting with myusers2 would have their processes killed at the same time!
