the step i told u earlier will definatly work

pid=`ps ax | grep urcommand | cut -b 2-6 | grep -v

u have to include more with tty like pty etc

if any script is scheduled using cron, the script
names does appears in ps ax output, and u can gets pid
on this basis.

once u got pid u can easily send sigals to it.

please let me know if u have ne further query
