in reply to how to get pid for multiple child process in parent process

You could always do something like:

my $result = qx/pgrep .*/;

This would result in a set of pids for the active shell, one per line. You'll have to investigate to determine the usability of these results. Also, I have only shown the broadest possible result... you'll be able to tweak the arguments to pgrep to fine-tune it.

Here's the current output on my system:

foo@bar ~: pgrep .* 64667 64666 64663 63664 63554 63227 93711 92292 76330 74514 57312 18496 64105 5883 5882 5881 9224 630 623 565

I hope this is helpful.

Your wish is my commandline.
