Sun Studio 12: Debugging a Program With dbx

Killing a Program Without Terminating the Session

The dbx kill command terminates debugging of the current process as well as killing the process. However, the kill command preserves the dbx session itself leaving dbx ready to debug another program.

Killing a program is a good way of eliminating the remains of a program you were debugging without exiting dbx.

To kill a program executing in dbx, type:

(dbx) kill

For more information, see kill Command.
