I'm running a monitoring script under linux written in python. It's nohup'ed so
that I can log out and it will continue running happily and so on, but
sometimes I need to kill the script before editing the source and relaunching it.
Question is, what's the nicest way to kill the python process under linux? Is a
simple 'kill [process-id]' the nicest way to do it, or is there a different
signal I should send it?
