script to kill processes


I am trying to write a shell script that will kill multiple-process processes or all processes with the same owner. The script should not allow anyone to attempt to kill all or any processes by owner if that owner is root.

Any thoughts?

As a one-liner:

Code:
ps -u $1 -o pid | xargs kill -9
