philipbailey,
We seem to be speaking past one another. At no point have I said the in-house developed script needs to know if itself is running. While the scripts my co-workers may write are in-house scripts, they will be interacting with the process table and any process that may be running there. One (of many) features I would like this library to have is the ability to answer questions like:
  • Is /usr/bin/hello running (even if it may look like sh ../hello in the process table)
  • Of the bazillion /usr/bin/java processes that are running, are any running with command line arguments that have the max heap space set to above 3GB

I assure you that I read your post carefully and I am sorry if I came across at not being appreciative of your response. Perhaps I am too close to the problem. To try and be clearer - the library is a general purpose way for in-house developed scripts to interact with the process table - even when those processes are not in-house.

Cheers - L~R
