in reply to Process id

One way is to do a fork/exec which is all system really is anyway:

my $pid = fork (); die "Fork failed!\n" unless defined $pid; if ( $pid == 0 ) { # convert kid to java process exec( $path_to_java_process ); exit 0; # for clarity, we don't actually get here } # in the parent $pid holds PID of child which is (now) the java proces +s

cheers

    If you're going to be launching processes yourself, don't forget to reap them as well. If you want to catch errors on exit, you'll probably want to call wait or waitpid to do that.

[TCLion]: Good Morning Monks, I am parsing logs and some date time formats are inconsistent. I am trying to make output all same format. What is the best way to convert a month(word) to month(number)?
[Corion]: TCLion: I'm not aware of a better way than manually building the hash, as all strptime incarnations I know have nasty edge cases
[davido]: And remember; time is hard. :) As soon as you think, I've got this, you'll discover that time is harder than that. :)
