Thanks PodMaster and all other monks who have replied so quickly. But in my case procexp is not suitable. First, I am telling what is my requirement. On a remote machine one perl script (say test.pl) is running and from another machine I want to detect whether test.pl is running or not on the remote machine.
In this scenario how can I detect whether test.pl is running on remote machine or not ?
I have not tried with par, but now I have started reading about it.
One more query, in UNIX box I can detect whether test.pl is running or not using ps -ef|grep test.pl , but it takes time. Is there any way to detect it faster?
Thanks in advance.
