revised Is it possible to send an xpdf process a signal that causes it to reload the file being displayed?
PID won't work, but window class will work.

Turns out xpdf doesn't post its PID, so --pid does not work. But ` xdotool search --onlyvisible --class Xpdf key r` works. And thanks for telling me about xdotool! Useful!

comment What determines the path where the system searches for a file?
@ChrisDown there is only one ksh and it is the true shell from the hand of David Korn. I have never found an imitation worth using. And ksh has not required rehash nonsense since ksh88i.

@ChrisDown: luckily for me I use ksh, which "just works" :-)

Urk! I can't believe that in 2012 we are still using shells that require to be rehashed when the $PATH changes. I wonder if there is a bash option to require it to rehash at every command?
