NAME

Unix::PID::Tiny - Subset of Unix::PID functionality with smaller memory footprint

VERSION

This document describes Unix::PID::Tiny version 0.91

SYNOPSIS

    use Unix::PID::Tiny;
    my $pid = Unix::PID::Tiny->new();

    print Dumper( $pid->pid_info_hash( $misc_pid ) );

    if ($pid->is_pid_running($misc_pid)) {
        $pid->kill( $misc_pid ) or die "Could not stop $misc_pid";
    }

DESCRIPTION

Like Unix::PID but supplies only a few key functions.

INTERFACE

new()

See Unix::PID's new()

kill()

See Unix::PID's kill()

pid_info_hash()

See Unix::PID's pid_info_hash()

is_pid_running()

See Unix::PID's is_pid_running()

get_pid_from_pidfile()

See Unix::PID's get_pid_from_pidfile()

is_pidfile_running()

See Unix::PID's is_pidfile_running()

pid_file()

See Unix::PID's pid_file()

The "retry" configuration can also be hash ref w/ the optional keys:

num_of_passes

This number corresponds to the the array ref version’s “first item”. Defaults to 3.

passes_config

This array ref corresponds to the the array ref version’s “additional arguments”. Defaults to [1,2].

See Unix::PID's pid_file_no_unlink()

pid_file_no_cleanup()

Alias of pid_file_no_unlink(). Some folks like this name better.

_raw_ps()

See Unix::PID's _raw_ps()

If $self->{'ps_path'} is ever set to anything invalid at any point it is simply not used and 'ps' by itself will be used.
