global variable process

type (nil, string)

A variable that contains the main module name of the currently opened process


Examples[edit]

When not attached to any process:

Code:

print(type(process))
print(process)
print('Attached to ' .. (process or 'NOTHING'))
if process then
  print('attached')
else
  print('Not Attached')
end

Output:

nil 
 
Attached to NOTHING 
Not Attached

With the same code as above and attached to the Cheat Engine Tutorial (64-Bit):

Output:

string 
Tutorial-x86_64.exe 
Attached to Tutorial-x86_64.exe 
attached

Note: If attached, and the attached process closes the "process" variable will still contain the last attached process' main module name. But "readInteger(process)" can be used.

if process ~= nil and readInteger(process) ~= nil then
  print('Attached to ' .. process)
end
