This will only give you the opened file descriptors for the process, it does not give you memory-mapped files(/proc/###/maps), the current working directory (/proc/###/cwd) or indeed the binary itself(/proc/###/exe). (All of these are for Linux btw, I have no idea whether this is the same on Sun OS)

In answer to the OP's question, I once looked for the same thing and don't know of an existing module that does this. If you're looking for a cross-platform solution I'd suggest going with McDarrens suggestion to use the lsof binary and parse its output(that's what I did, I'd post code, but I don't own it and it was bog-standard parsing stuff anyway). It'll be easier to compensate for syntax and output differences of lsof than to mimic its behaviour on different platforms.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
