NAME
       pid - Retrieve process id(s)

SYNOPSIS
       pid ?fileId?


DESCRIPTION
       If  the  fileId  argument  is  given then it should normally refer to a
       process pipeline created with the open(2,3,n) command.  In this case  the  pid
       command  will  return a list whose elements are the process identifiers
       of all the processes in(1,8) the pipeline, in(1,8) order.  The list will be empty
       if(3,n)  fileId refers to an open(2,3,n) file(1,n) that isn't a process pipeline.  If no
       fileId argument is given then pid returns the process identifier of the
       current  process.   All  process  identifiers  are  returned as decimal
       strings.
