If the process is registered then you can do a whereis/1 if it is not
then you must have some way of identifying it i.e pid(). If you have its
pid() then you can interact with it in any number of ways. The cleanest
is is_process_alive(Pid) the Pid argument must refer to a process of the
same node as the call. Things of this sort can usually be found in the
kernel module "erlang".
