NAME

Win32::Getppid - Implementation of getppid() for windows

VERSION

version 0.05

SYNOPSIS

 use Win32::Getppid;
 
 my $parent_pid = getppid;

DESCRIPTION

This module simply provides an implementation of getppid for Windows, where it is usually missing. It doesn't do anything on non-Windows platforms, so you can safely make it a non-OS specific dependency for your CPAN module.

FUNCTIONS

getppid

Returns the parent process id for the current process. This is imported by default only in a real Windows environment ($^O eq 'MSWin32'). On Cygwin getppid returns the cygwin parent process, for the real windows parent process id on cygwin you can use the fully qualified version:

 my $windows_ppid = Win32::Getppid::getppid();
