The script checks whether a specific process is running. It just parses output of ps. If the process is not running, the script runs a command to start the process.
Features:
- check whether a process is running
- try to start the process with a specified command
- return the result of the process starting attempt

NB! Don't run the script via sudo in order to be able to start program (as any command may be executed via sudo this way) - specify the starting command via sudo instead!

Example usage: Example: ./check_process.sh amavisd "Amavis daemon" "/usr/local/bin/sudo /usr/local/etc/rc.d/amavisd.sh start" perl

The script should be compatible with FreeBSD as well as with Linux.
