kill -9 your_program_name
works very well
Usually 'kill -9 your_program' is overkill; it forcefully terminates the
program with SIGKILL, which means the program has no chance to clean up
after itself, and can leave your file system in a mess for the next time
you attempt to run the program. You should reserve this for a
last-ditch effort, only after the nicer 'kill your_program' (SIGTERM) or
'kill -s INT' (SIGINT) both result in no action.
I had the impression he needs the last resort...
