Nope. :) If you want that, your script probably does the job the best. I
was thinking in terms of needing the pids/needing to know if a process
is running from inside of a script, not being used from the command
Of course, if you wanted to get pathlogical, you could have your script
do something like ps u `pgrep process_name`, but there'd really be no
point to that.
