SIGKILL/SIGTERM

SIGKILL/SIGTERM

Hi,

Whats the difference between SIGTERM and SIGKILL. I know that SIGKILL is
a * kill and cannot be caught. But if my process does not catch
SIGTERM and so does not have a signal handler for SIGTERM, will it
effectively be the same as SIGKILL.

And for a shell script, will there be any difference between the two.

Thanks,
Sampath.
