15.2.2 Finding out about processes
The system initializes a number of processes on startup. These processes are specified by
The current process is specified by
*current-process*. A list of all the current processes is returned by
list-all-processes and the number of them is returned by
processes-count. The function
ps is analogous to the UNIX command
, and returns a list of the processes in the system, ordered by priority.
To find a process when you know its name, use
get-process. To find the name, when you have the process, use
process-name. The variable
*process-initial-bindings* specifies the variables that are initially bound in a process.
