PROCCTL(8)                BSD System Manager's Manual               PROCCTL(8)

NAME
     procctl -- clear procfs event flags

SYNOPSIS
     procctl pid ...

DESCRIPTION
     The procctl utility clears the procfs(5) event mask used by truss(1).
     This can be used in the event that a process is left stranded, since the
     procfs(5) events result in a non-killable process.  The arguments are a
     list of process IDs; procctl goes through the list and clears the event
     masks for each specified process.

SEE ALSO
     truss(1), procfs(5)

HISTORY
     The procctl utility was written by Sean Eric Fagan for FreeBSD.
