hey all,

Is there a reference written in actual English that explains the kill command? 
'man kill' is rather too terse to be useful to a noob.  I want to know what 
all the options mean, and when to use them. All these years of seeing 
mysterious references like "send a SIGHUP", well, it's time to learn what the 
silly things mean.
