is there a way to grep out the pid of a process via bash script? 
basically what i want to do is write a script to start a program, BUT
at the beginning of the script kill any current processes of that
program.  is there a simple way to do this?  is there a program or
script that will return only the PID of a process when given the name
of the program?
