in reply to Unix process number on a mac...

What are you trying to do? If you just want to check if the process is still running, use kill() with the 0 signal. It tells you if the process is still running. If it isn't running, just restart it.

kill 0, $pid;

    This works on the mac. I didn't know about the 0 kill signal. (I knew 9 to 'really' kill a process but I will google the rest...) Thanks!
