That's what I was afraid of; yet more complication in making a system decently portable.

OK, so my Ubuntu does have that command installed, so a good start, thanks.
I have no idea how one might find that pid and use it within any of the shell scripts etc we have. Fire up the Bash Signal! (Obviously this is the unix equivalent of the Windows(™) Bat Signal, which gets Batman to help with your .bat files)
