Killing OOMMF Processes: killoommf

The killoommf application terminates running OOMMF processes.

The killoommf command line is:

tclsh oommf.tcl killoommf [standard options] [-account name] \
   [-hostport port] [-q] [-show] [-shownames] [-test] \
   [-timeout secs] oid [...]
-account name
Specify the account name. The default is the same used by mmLaunch: the current user login name, except on Windows 9X, where the dummy account ID ``oommf'' may be used instead.
-hostport port
Use the host server listening on port. Default is set by the Net_Host port setting in oommf/config/options.tcl, or by the environment variable OOMMF_HOSTPORT (which, if set, overrides the former). The standard setting is 15136.
Quiet; don't print informational messages.
Don't kill anything, just print matching targets.
Don't kill anything, just print nicknames of matching targets, where nicknames are as set by the MIF 2.1 Destination command.
Don't kill anything, just test that targets are responding.
-timeout secs
Maximum time to wait for response from servers, in seconds. Default is five seconds.
oid ...
List of one or more oids (OOMMF ID's), application names, nicknames, or the keyword ``all''. Glob-style wildcards may also be used. This field is required (there are no default kill targets).
The killoommf command affects processes that listen to OOMMF message traffic. These are the same applications that are listed in the ``Threads'' list of mmLaunch. The command
tclsh oommf.tcl killoommf all
is essentially equivalent to the ``File|Exit All OOMMF'' menu option in mmLaunch, except that killoommf does not shut down any mmLaunch processes.

An OOMMF application that does not respond to killoommf can be killed by using the OOMMF command line program pidinfo to determine its PID (process identification) as used by the operating system, and then using the system facilities for terminating processes (e.g., kill on Unix, or the Windows Task Manager on Windows).
