I have a bash script where i kill a running process by sending the SIGTERM signal to it's process ID. However, i want to know the return code of the process i just sent the signal.
Is that possible?
i cannot use 'wait' because the process to kill was not started from my script and i'm receiving
"pid ##### is not a child of this shell"
I did some tests in a command line, in a console where the process was running, after i send the SIGTERM signal (from another console), i checked the exit code and it was 143.
I want to kill the process from a different script and catch that number.
