Are you sure?  With a single `-'?
This old get_iplayer, I haven't upgraded yet, has --pid-recursive.
Perhaps that does what you're thinking of;  I've never used it.

    --pid <pid>,<pid>,...

Don't add spaces after the comma?  It makes them separate words.

    $ prargv get_iplayer --pid foo, bar, xyzzy
	0 '/home/ralph/bin/prargv'
	1 'get_iplayer'
	2 '--pid'
	3 'foo,'
	4 'bar,'
	5 'xyzzy'
    $ prargv get_iplayer --pid foo,bar,xyzzy
	0 '/home/ralph/bin/prargv'
	1 'get_iplayer'
	2 '--pid'
	3 'foo,bar,xyzzy'

Cheers, Ralph.
