var killCommand = cli.Command{
Name: "kill",
Usage: "kill sends the specified signal (default: SIGTERM) to the container's init process",
ArgsUsage: `<container-id> <signal>
Where "<container-id>" is the name for the instance of the container and
"<signal>" is the signal to be sent to the init process.
For example, if the container id is "ubuntu01" the following will send a "KILL"
signal to the init process of the "ubuntu01" container:
# runc kill ubuntu01 KILL`,
Flags: []cli.Flag{
Name: "all, a",
Usage: "send the specified signal to all processes inside the container",
