it's my first post here, because i'm not a low level guy, usually
developing with Cocoa high level API... but low level UNIX knowledge
is very important and very useful to understand what's behind the
Well, for my project, i need to get the parent process id (ppid) of
another process than the current one. Given its pid for example.
In fact, i would like to get exactly what Activity Monitor.app get
when using "All processes, Hierarchically" (in the pop up button at
the top). The hierarchic mode is able to display the parent process
of *any* process...
how is that achieved ? i look at tons of man pages, google etc... i
could not find anything useful. I'm pretty sure there is no standart
unix call for that but what do i know ? is it a private API ?
any help ?
thanks a lot !
