find-process

Arguments: string

Searches the processes on *all-processes* for one whose name contains the string argument, using case-insensitive search. If there is a unique process that satisfies the test then that process is returned. If there is no process that satisfies the test, nil is returned. If there are multiple processes that satisfy the test, an error is signaled.

find-process is designed for forms typed to a listener prompt, such as:

(process-interrupt (find-process "just-enough") #'interrupter)

If find-process does not find a unique process or any process, it errors rather thsn possibly doing the wrong thing (errors at the top level are easily handled, find-process is not really designed to be used in application code).

See also process-name-to-process. See multiprocessing.htm for general information on multiprocessing.
