PIDOF

Section: User Commands (1)

NAME

pidof -- find the process ID of a running program.  

SYNOPSIS

pidof [-s] [-c] [-x] [-o omitpid[,omitpid..]] [-o omitpid[,omitpid..]..] program [program..]  

DESCRIPTION

Pidof finds the process id's (pids) of the named programs. It prints those id's on the standard output.  

OPTIONS

-s
Single shot - this instructs the program to only return one pid.
-c
Only return process ids that are running with the same root directory. This option is ignored for non-root users, as they will be unable to check the current root directory of processes they do not own.
-x
Scripts too - this causes the program to also return process id's of shells running the named scripts.
-o omitpid
Tells pidof to omit processes with that process id. The special pid %PPID can be used to name the parent process of the pidof program, in other words the calling shell or shell script.
 

EXIT STATUS

0
At least one program was found with the requested name.
1
No program was found with the requested name.
