thanks, can you point me to a relevant example of such a pgrep script?

I used to use a pgrep script which is better than a pid file in almost
all cases. monit has supported the same functionality for a couple of
years or so. Check the manual and usually using a start or end of line
regex is helpful.

I have no idea why RTFM is used so aggressively on LINUX mailing lists
because whilst 'apropos' is traditionally the most powerful command on
Unix-like systems it's 'modern' replacement 'apropos' on Linux is a tool
to help psychopaths learn to control their anger.
