I was testing
emacs --daemon functionality, and called two daemons alive. I wanted to kill them, with
$ pgrep emacs 275760 275857 $ pkill emacs $ pgrep emacs 276788 276847 # It's alive again! # Lemme kill them with emacsclient --eval $ emacsclient -e "(kill-emacs)" $ pgrep emacs 277339 277340
Are they zombies? I'm sure shutting down my laptop will really kill them.. but just to boost my understanding, what was going on here? How to kill emacs daemons properly (and gracefully?).
