-===== Patch ===== 
  
-The patch (including tests) based off of 5.4.11 is [[https://gist.github.com/keyurdg/4728770#file-php_ps-patch|here]].+===== Specification =====
  
 +==== Description ====
 +
 +  bool cli_set_process_title(string $title)
 +
 +''cli_set_process_title()'' sets title of the process to //**title**// and returns TRUE if the operation succeeded. Or FALSE if it fails. On failure, a WARNING is emitted with details as to why it failed, the most common cause being the operating system is not supported.
 +
 +==== Parameters ====
 +
 +**title**
 +
 +==== Description ====
 +
 +  string cli_get_process_title()
 +
 +''cli_get_process_title()'' returns a string containing the title that was set using ''cli_set_process_title''
 +
 +Note that this returned string may not match what ps/top would show; for example on FreeBSD in ps, you would see the process name as "php: title (php)" where //**title**// is what was passed to ''cli_set_process_title''
 +
 +If the method fails for any reason, a WARNING is emitted and NULL is returned; the most common cause of failure being the operating system is not supported.
 +
 +==== Parameters ====
 +
 +None
 +
 +===== Patch =====
 +
 +The pull request (including tests) based on PHP-5.5 is [[https://github.com/php/php-src/pull/280|here]].
