Shell-Script for killing processes


Hi,

I'm trying to kill several processes with a shell script. Right now I'm doing it manually with:

Code:
ps --user oulevon | grep process_name
I then kill the listed processes one by one. Is there a way to do it in a shell script? Thanks for any help?

Also see pgrep/pkill (pkill -SIGNAL -U username -f processname).
