You can use Proc::Killfam:
#!/usr/bin/perl #Proc::Killfam is part of Proc::ProceessTable module use Proc::Killfam; killfam $signal, @pids; killfam 'TERM', ($pid1, $pid2, @more_pids);
Or here is a snippet of a subroutine posted by robau awhile back:
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; #robau #This subroutine takes two arguments, the parent process ID #and the numeric signal to pass to the processes #(which would be 9 if you wanted to issue a -TERM). #Using Proc::Process you could find the process ID #of the process login -- zentara with something similar #to the following : #my $proc = Proc::ProcessTable->new; #my @ps = map { $_->pid if ($_->cmndline =~ /login -- zentara/) } @{$p +roc->table}; #&killchd($_, 9) foreach @ps; &killchd(9895, 9); #kill -9 process 9895 sub killchd ($;$) { use Proc::ProcessTable; my $sig = ($_[1] =~ /^\-?\d+$/) ? $_[1] : 0; my $proc = Proc::ProcessTable->new; my %fields = map { $_ => 1 } $proc->fields; return undef unless exists $fields{'ppid'}; foreach (@{$proc->table}) { kill $sig, $_->pid if ($_->ppid == $_[0]); }; kill $sig, $_[0]; };

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
