perl-Proc-Exists - Quickly and portably check for process existence.
A simple, portable, and fast module for checking whether a process exists or
not, regardless of whether it is a child of this process or has the same owner.
On POSIX systems, this is implemented by sending a 0 (test) signal to the
pid of the process to check and examining the result and errno. On Win32,
OpenProcess() is used for a similar job.
