"Apple Certified Tech"...hmmm. I'm so tempted. Start with reading the retail box and enclosed, owner's documentation.

If you mean PID, you can find it by typing 'top' (no quotes) in terminal. It's the first number on the line with your app's name in it.

But being an apple certified tech you should indeed know that...

ps -A from terminal will get you a PID as well. you can also from it in Activity Monitor. Did the Apple certifiction test cover this?

Yeah yeah yeah..I know bash the tech!


I am trying to find the id for an Installer Vise program, I get the type code as APPL but I get creator as ????

So I got one of the creator code modifier programs and changed it to VISE but it still errors out.

And for the record the test doesn't cover AppleScript in any depth. What I have is desktop/portable hardware repair and OS X help desk. I don't claim to know everything and ask questions every chance I get so I can learn.

Modern applications don't use Type/Creator codes. They use "java style" reverse dns identifiers (i.e. com.apple.iTunes). I'm not sure that this works in AppleScript though...
