I use linux OS.
I've already written a function that allow me to get the process name by pid. (searching in /proc). Now I'd like to perform the inverse task.I mean get the process pid by its name.
I could write a function that search in every folder in /proc for the process name, but i think that should be another solution. Something like include a kernel structure that keep information on the active process.
Can you suggest me another way? or some references where i can study?
