I am seeking this instructional booklet. If anyone has any information on where it might be obtained, please let me know.

Setting "process name" with twistd

Little known twistd feature:

exarkun@boson:~$ cat foo.tac
from twisted.application.service import Application, IProcess

application = Application("Demonstrate twistd process name support")
IProcess(application).processName = "name-demo"
exarkun@boson:~$ twistd -y foo.tac
exarkun@boson:~$ pidof name-demo

Lapsang is good. So is jasmine. Even white is pretty nice. I should stick to those. No more rooibos ever.
