Limbic~Region, members of PerlMonks can only respond to the requirements you have given. You start by saying I am currently working on building a library of tools so that others at the office can more easily write robust scripts. That sounds like you are only handling in-house code, which would be amenable to the suggestions you have been given. Now you say every vendor of every application. Which is it?

You also say you seem to be assuming I am trying to do something I am not. Well perhaps you should more clearly state what it is that you need. But if you read what I said carefully, I have suggested that you could put multiple PIDs in a file relating to each script, allowing you to keep track of as many as you want.

On the scenario of a script (1) dying without cleaning up the relevant PID entry and (2) another process with the same PID coming into existence, sure that's possible. So, also check the command line for that PID when deciding whether to clean it up (or the owner of the process or GID or the parent PID or all of the above). That is more certain than only checking the contents of the process table.

Title:
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
