Command to logout all the users in one command

skill -KILL -v /dev/pts/*
This command logs out all users - which is way more secure to use ps -ef and "grep" to kill processes. Never ever use ps -ef piped to grep to kill something. If you ever need to ps-something use the UNIX95-directive, which makes sure you will never need "grep" together with "ps".

This command will help you to log out all the users in a single command. Through these command line interfaces, gout treatment students need not write lines of codes for doing some task. Its really easy if you understand the code correctly. Looking here for more details.
