Proc-Pidfile (1.005) **

Too bad the author doesn't know about <code>kill(0, $pid)</code> -- thanks to a pointless dependency on Proc::ProcessTable, this module fails to build on most platforms.

Proc-Pidfile (1.005) ****

Easy to use and cleans up after itself. Only complaint is that it requires Proc::ProcessTable which is XS and wouldn't compile on a particular platform for me. Seems like checking for a running process require that much overhead.
