Quit applications from the command line
Authored by: sjk on Jun 25, '04 10:14:28PM
Read this post on the DEVONtechnologies for an example of why killall (at least with a SIGTERM signal) isn't recommended for quitting DEVONthink; the AppleScript method is suggested instead so the database is . Need to find out whether using SIGHUP (or some other signal besides SIGTERM) with killall would be equivalent since it's more convenient.
