IMHO its easier and more straight forward to do the functionality of 
"pidof" directly in pascal code:

  - do a loop with a findnext() to handle all directories within "/proc"
  - in each of them test if a file "cmdline" exists
  - read cmdline in a staring
  - if this denotes the process you mean to access the directory name is 
the PID
