4.29 Creating PID files

The library (vicare posix pid-files) implements facilities for the creation of PID files, built on top of the library (vicare posix). It is suggested to import this library prefixing the bindings as follows:

(import (prefix (vicare posix pid-files)

Notice that this library only creates PID files, not lock files; when lock files are needed we should use the library (vicare posix lock-pid-files), posix lock-pid-files for details.
