Linux Question

How do I get the path of a process in Unix / Linux

In Windows environment there is an API to obtain the path which is running a process. Is there something similar in Unix / Linux?

Or is there some other way to do that in these environments?

Answer

If you want the path of the current executable, look at /proc/$PID/exe, which is a symlink to it
