I'm fighting a bug in IntelliJ where nailgun instances screw up when SNAPSHOT dependencies are updated. I want to automate killing all processes that contain nailgun in their name.
So far I can get all relevant PIDs like so:
ps -x -o pid,cmd | grep nailgun | cut -f 1 -d ' '
This gives me for example:
26759 27852 28817 29963 31234 31577
I can go and run
kill for each of them manually, like
kill 26759 etc. But piping doesn't work:
ps -x -o pid,cmd | grep nailgun | cut -f 1 -d ' ' | kill
This just prints
kill: usage: kill [-s sigspec | -n signum | -sigspec] pid | jobspec ... or kill -l [sigspec]
How do I pipe the list of PIDs to kill?
