EPIC's behavior can be controlled (to an extent) from the Unix command line via signals. The following signals have notable affects on the client:
SIGSEGV cause the client to dump core, if compiled with EPIC_DEBUG SIGTERM cause the client to immediately, but gracefully, exit SIGKILL cause the client to die immediately, no cleanup SIGUSR1 cause the client to close all DCC connections and any EXECed processes that are still active
Typically, these signals are delivered with kill(1). The client's process id (PID) must be known to send it a signal. The PID may be obtained with the ps(1) command, or other utilities that display running processes. The basic form would be:
% kill -USR1 <PID>
