process-name-to-process

Arguments: name &key abbrev (error t)

This function returns the process whose process-name is name. name must be a string or a symbol, in which case the print-name is used. If the abbrev keyword argument is specified true, then name is matched to the beginning of each process-name to find a match. The abbrev argument defaults to nil.

If abbrev is true and there are multiple processes whose names start with abbrev, two values are returned: one of the processes found and t.

If no process is found whose name is name (or, if abbrev is true, whose name begins with name), an error is signaled if error is unspecified or true, and nil is returned if error is specified nil.

See also find-process. See multiprocessing.htm for general information on multiprocessing in Allegro CL.
