Is there a way of making the user sudo by default? So the sudo command can be suppressed?

I have an AIX 5.3 and sudo in place. It works fine but every time to use kill command I need to type sudo in front of it. Is there a way of making the user sudo user by default? So I can run the command kill -9 without sudo prefix?

Yes, make it alias in your shell

alias kill='sudo kill'

Open in new window


And also put it in your shell's profile file
