Actually that works fine even on my 1.4T machines (some six to seven
years before that date, IIRC). It does require that $pid is used
without quotes, to make the whitespace go away, but that's how I was
using it anyway.
I'd also use ` ` rather than $( ), but that's mostly a personal
idiosyncracy, and it works either way, even with the 1.4T sh.
