That's an OS-specific question, isn't it? Let me guess, Linux. There is
no specific way to get the pid within an R process (what could you do
with it?), but you can trivially dyn.load some code to tell you via a call
Of course adding a Sys.getpid() function would be easy, but what use would
it be? Also, what type is pid_t to map to in R?
