Subject Re: need some help with module that does not work on linux
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2008 17:41:34 GMT
  A Google search for for the function you mentioned, 
setproctitle, with the word Linux produced some possible 
leads in the first few results.  They may help you change 
the process name.
This one looked particularly interesting:

  Also the fourth result for "Linux setproctitle" is a
Perl module which does that on Linux, so one could look
at the C code for that module to see how they are 
doing it.  The output looks quite like the output of
mod_status, so one might use mod_status to achieve the 
same end goal.  (No, mod_status doesn't change the output
of "ps", but maybe you can use mod_status INSTEAD of
ps, or write a simple wrapper around ps which merges it's 
output with that of mod_status.)
