Or 'killall'. Which has (had) the interesting namesake on Solaris which
would indiscriminately kill all processes on the system.

If you have suspended the job (^Z), you can usually refer to its PID as
%%, so e.g.
kill -9 %%
should do what you want. If you are a bit more careful, you can list
background jobs with 'jobs' (-l to get PIDs as well), and you can then
refer to each as %N, where N is job number. So if darcs is background
job number 3, you can type
kill -9 %3
The nice thing about Unix is that there are pleny of wheels, and you can
pick the one that fits your wagon best. :-)
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
