Project description


This library provides an object that is able to

  • Name a process

  • Stop a process from it's name

  • Give information about the current process

If you notice any errors, please notify me via:


pip install processnamer

Example use:

import sys
from time import sleep

#Import the lib:
from processnamer import processGame
#Create object:
prg = processGame()

#Display information (stdout or print will cause brokenpipe error):
sys.stderr.write("I am " + prg.prcname + ", and i have pid " + str( + "\n")

#Gather information:                  #Gets the name, but it can do this foe any pid
info = prg.getName(           #Get info for pid of this process
#Display information:
sys.stderr.write("I am " + info + ", and i have pid " + str( + "\n")

if prg.prcname == "python":           #If this is the original process

    #Restart this as process imcool:
    prg.nameStop("imcool")            #Stop the second process

    sleep(10)                         #Second process waits so that it can be stopped
