        String readLine;
        Runtime runtime = Runtime.getRuntime();
        CharSequence name = new File(str).getName();
        BufferedReader bufferedReader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(runtime.exec("ps " + name).getInputStream()));
        do {
            readLine = bufferedReader.readLine();
            if (readLine == null) {
                return -1;
