Program/Source Code:

The source code to create a Linux shell script program to print the current process id is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully on Ubuntu 20.04.

#!/bin/bash

# Program name: "process_id.sh"
# Linux shell script program to print the current process id.
echo "Current process identifier: $$"
