Basically I want to dynamically start some processes which may create their own children processes, also I want to kill a certain group of processes I just created whenever I want.
One way I could think of is to start processes with a name (to distinguish as a group), then use
pkill to kill them by the name.
The question is how to start a process with a name so that I can use
pkill to kill them by the name? I am open to other solutions as well.
