[Snort-users] Signaled Stop/Start?

Is there a way to quickly, and gracefully, stop SNORT and re-start it to pick up configuration file changes? I'm using 

ps -ael | grep snort | kill ` awk ' { print $4 } ' `
snort .... parameters ....

in a script, but is there a signal that I can pass to snort that causes a restart? Similar to the signal that causes stats to be dumped without actually stopping and starting the process. 

Thanks. -chip
