I guess using any not in use proper pid must work. If I am not
mistaken, the pid is simply used as address for I/O. And sending
to a non existing pid is no crime. There is of course a risk that
the pid is eventually used :-)

Ämne: "Null" group_leader?

Hi all,

Is there any predefined equivalent of /dev/null when talking about
group leaders?

I have a RPC from Java whose output I want to ignore.

best regards,
