As does mine. I am not sure, but maybe what I wrote isn't clear. I think
you may have thought I meant to leave the "pidof" command in place.
After reading my paragraph, I can see that I was not clear about that.
Anyway, both iterations work. One kills a single PID, using pidof, and
the other kills multiple processes called "namd", without pidof.
