I honestly doubt that. The I/O is buffered and you need to flush()/close()
the file. Otherwise data may not get written until python interpreter exits.
if file('/proc/%s/cmdline' % pid).read().endswith('python'):
> os.system('kill %s' % pid)
Are you sure about endswith('python')?
Maybe you need find('python') != -1.
