    piddlerpublic

    piddler

    A node module that writes the pid of a node process to a file for delicious programmatic mainpulation

    usage

    Simply require piddler.

    var pid = require('piddler');

    Then start your app with -P somepath/somefile.pid

    node myapp -P /var/log/node/myapp.pid

    Piddler will look for a -P flag and, if found, write that processes' id to that file.

    Return values

    int [pid] - on successful write bool false - on unsuccessful write null - if no flag was used to start node app
