.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Nm
utility examines the list of current processes to find a specified process
and all its descendants.
A process may be specified either by name or by process ID.
If no arguments are given,
.Nm
displays a list of the whole process tree.
For each process specified on the command line,
.Nm
outputs a line containing the process ID, the command name, and the PIDs
of all the descendants (and their descendants, etc.).
.Pp
When invoked as
.Nm rkill ,
this utility does not display information about the processes, but sends
them all a signal instead.
If not specified on the command line, a terminate (SIGTERM) signal is
sent.
.Pp
When invoked as
.Nm rrenice ,
this utility does not display information about the processes, but attempts
to set their nice value instead.
