Subject Re: Announcing: Server::Control and apachectlp
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2009 20:35:01 GMT
Perhaps it would be prudent to add some logic that when "lsof" is not
available, check for (and possibly use) "fstat" instead.

Do note that the syntax of these two commands (lsof vs. fstat) are not
the same and additional logic may need to be added.

Just thought I'd mention "fstat" because not all systems have
"lsof" (for example, FreeBSD vs. Linux).
