I am trying to get the process id of a process from its name.
I use the linux way of looking into the procfs and looking for the path:
But I dont see this path at all.. there is only an 'as' and I read the 'Processes' docs in the Momentics IDE but dint
understand. Tried even looking into the pidin code but got confused.
Can somebody help me.
Bottomline is: I have to write a C code to kill all process instantiated under a name.
I thought of getting the pid of all process under this name using the readlink(path) /proc/pid directory and doing a
string compare for the process name.
And once I get the pid I do a kill(pid,SIGTERM).
How do I go about it?
By the way where is the process path? The proc directory isnt like the linux procfs....
