How do I wait for a specific process to die? I want to do something like: waitpid 1234&&(echo "done!" | Mail -s "PROC DONE" kelly.terry.jo...@gmail.com)
I'm sure this is trivial, but I can't find a way to do it. I wrote a Perl script that checks every second if /proc/pid exists, but that only works if /proc is mounted + I'm now on VMs which can't easily mount /proc -- We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying to understand and assimilate technology.
