I would recommend the usage of Proc::ProcessTable which I have reviewed previously on this site here. Using Proc::ProcessTable, your code would look something like this:

use Proc::ProcessTable; my $running = 0; my $proc = Proc::ProcessTable->new; foreach ( @{ $proc->table } ) { if ($_->cmndline =~ /testd/) { ++$running; } } if (!$running) { # do something to reinvoke process }

This code will count the number of testd processes running on the system, returned in $running, which should allow you to determine whether this existing process should continue execution.

The other approach to this problem would be to incorporate a process identification or lock file, as suggested by Ryszard above, which can be monitored external the current execution process.


perl -le 'print+unpack("N",pack("B32","00000000000000000000000111110001"))'

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.
