Here's a simple way to do it, in the beginning of your startup script,
define the PIDFILE, and then dump the PID from the output of the PS
command into it: /var/run 

        export PIDFILE=/var/run/
        ps -fe | grep test | head -n1 | cut -d" " -f 6 > $PIDFILE

Then, on exit, you'll want a line removing $PIDFILE
