Terminate a running murex function
fid-kill will terminate a running murex function in a similar way that the POSIX
kill (superficially speaking).
fid-kill doesn't send a kernel signal to the process but since murex is a multi-threaded shell with a single signal,
fid-kill will send a cancellation context to any builtins executing (which covers builtins, aliases, public and private functions and any external executables running which were launched within the current murex shell).
The FID (function ID) sent is not the same as a POSIX (eg Linux, macOS, BSD) PID (process ID). You can obtain a FID from
bexists: Check which builtins exist
bg: Run processes in the background
builtins: Returns runtime information on the internal state of murex
exec: Runs an executable
fexec: Execute a command or function, bypassing the usual order of precedence.
fg: Sends a background process into the foreground
fid-killall: Terminate all running murex functions
fid-list: Lists all running functions within the current murex session
jobs: Lists all running functions within the current murex session
murex-update-exe-list: Forces murex to rescan $PATH looking for exectables
