This command sends a bus error signal
to the process
. This signal name
doesn't correspond to one signal number
in particular, it depends on the system
. Usually the system
sends these as necessary
, so you won't need to use it often.
If you read it literally, it seems to say "kill the process by hitting it with a bus". Maybe leave it in the path of the system bus, sort of like tying a lady to the train tracks like they did in cartoons or bad movies.
