Question how to assign output from bash command ps to array ?


Hi,

I have a command:
ps aux|grep "$nameoftheprocess" |grep grep --invert-match|awk '{printf $2; }

as an example: one result returns 3 PIDs like following:
769777057724 # which is 7697 7705 7724

I would like to assign those values into array. How to do it ?

Thank you,
Kind Regards,
Martin

Sorry, I solved it by:
PID_PS=( `ps aux|grep "${_PROC1}" |grep grep --invert-match|awk '{printf $2;printf "\n"; }'` )

Please don't. Try PIDS=($(pgrep $nameoftheprocess)).
