RE: Finding PID of a curl process

"Shouldn't this be something that you handle from your C program? If you're in control of the fork call, you know the PID.
I was oversimplifying the problem for the sake of this discussion. I have cases where curl is launched from an external script and/or needs to be monitored by a process other than the one that started it. It would be convenient to easily find the pid in those cases, the same way you can for many daemons out there.
