Perl module to manage process id files

This Perl module is useful for writers of daemons and other processes that need to tell whether they are already running, in order to prevent multiple process instances. The module accomplishes this via *nix-style pidfiles, which are files that store a process identifier.

Inspired by ProcPID_File, but with a much simpler interface.
