I guess the first think you should do is look up kill in the man page.

Solution 1

In a terminal, type 'man kill'.

It won't kill neither man nor woman ;).

Exit man by typing 'q'.

Hope this helps,

You create a process by running a program.
You can see the list of processes in the 'proc' system pseudo-folder (I think it's /dev/proc, I'm on a Windows machine at the moment).
Google for 'linux commands', spend a few hours reading, in the end you'll get the hang of it.

Tnx sooo much Pablo u have been very helpful.but now i have a question for u.i used the ps command to list me all the processes in my system but it is all unidentifiable for me which is which coz i don want to kill a process which is going to bring me is there any way i cld understand how to kill the less complicated one/easily recoverable processes?

Yes, the 'proc' folder shows a pseudo-folder for each process, and those folders have a file named 'commandline' or similar.
Those are text 'files' that have the full command line for the process.
