works sorda,
albeit this is what it spits out when capturing it to a file with the
following bash script

---------------------------------
#!/bin/bash
PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:
export PATH

cd /usr/local/icecast2
echo "List of servers to work with"

cat ./servers.txt

printf "Please enter which server to start:"
read answer
printf "\n"

nohup bin/icecast -b -c servers/$answer > /dev/null 2>&1 &

<p>PID=`ps -auxw | fgrep icecast | fgrep -v fgrep | awk '{print$2}'`
echo "$PID - $answer" | tee pids/$answer.txt

pits out this
10470
10481
10494
10511
10526
10544
10560
10575
10590
10607
10622
10639
10656
10671
10690
10707
10724
10741
10758
10775
10792
10809 - 8000-oggv5-testaccount.xml

the last one being the correct pid, the reasone its spitting out all those
other pids is because im starting multiple config files and its capturing
all,
so any idea on how to just capture the parent pid to a file?
