$ --> cat /etc/debian_version

 noman in ~
$ --> kill -l<tab>

Nothing comes up

 noman in ~
$ --> kill -l <tab>

This lists the PIDs. But I am looking for the number that is equivalent
to KILL, PIPE, etc.

May be this one is customized by Debian or the OP might be using some
*nix variant.

Thanks and Regards
