My C++ program needs to determine the name of a running process from its pid, without parsing the output from ps.  How is this done?

You didn't say what platform... some are different.  On some
(like AIX) you can use the getproc system call, which returns
a struct procinfo.  The progname is in the ui_comm field.
One of the GNU packages has a ps program in it -- you could
grab that and use it -- it probably has an example for whatever
platform you are on.
