This sounds like homework. Do your own homework.

Q: What are the two ways you can identify the PID nimber of your login shell?

A: 1) you can ask him, or
2) you can write down the number on the back of his jersey

Strange forum this. I'm sure it's called 'Linux Questions'? It's a valid question about Linux but the poster has been shot down in flames. Mmmm, what extraordinary people.

This does sound like homework. But I will give you a hint. If you ask that same question with Google you will get info on it and can choose what you think is the best. You can also try it and see if it works before you commit to an answer.

Welcome to LQ!

Sure, this forum is for helping newbies. But the way this OP presented the query, it does come across as homework.


Maybe everyone should review the LQ Rules;

Quote:
Do not expect LQ members to do your homework - you will learn much more by doing it yourself.
LQ Rules does not state we can't help but that it would be better if the person does the work in order to learn.

I personally will direct someone to the potential answer. The OP probably has a text or even lecture notes to reference. Plus a
Search here on LQ or <Linux> - Google would provide the answer when proper keywords are used.

@OP Look at 3,8 &9 below. Plus '2' & '7' will have good admin examples.

Just a few links to aid in gaining some understanding;



1 Linux Documentation Project
2 Rute Tutorial & Exposition
3 Linux Command Guide
4 Bash Beginners Guide
5 Bash Reference Manual
6 Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
7 Linux Newbie Admin Guide
8 LinuxSelfHelp
9 Getting Started with Linux

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Actually, for some reason my old ID was not recognized so I reinvented it.

FYI, I can actually learn from a book that tells you the answers if you have a brain sarcastic A**. I could have told you the answer and actually came back on here to be nice to you, but now go >>> **!! The rest of the answer to the question, btw... is on a page later in the book, they reference to that other page in chapter NINE talking about Process ID;s - but go & find that by yourself too!

It is very easy btw... ~shucks~ you can't figure it out? Maybe you should find another career.

Guess it talkes all kinds to make the world turn ....
