A Perl enthusiast, I earn my living doing Unix/Linux system administration and light systems programming. In a former life I was an ALGOL systems programmer before finding my real love was for Unix. My education is scientific with a Master of Science degree.

comment How to identify executable path with its PID on AIX 5 or more
I disagree specifically over point-3. Again, my disclaimer: I don't currently have access to an AIX machine. I would hope that you found something useful in my offerings, regardless.

Copy your executable to any directory; cd to the directory and launch the executable with a relative path. You can't assume anything.

I should have be very specific: at the moment I don't have access to an AIX machine. The answer I provided was therefore a more general pointer.
