noti: Monitor a process by PID and trigger a notification when the PID disappears.
$ noti -w ${process_id}
try on your machine

The command "noti -w ${process_id}" is likely used in a shell script or from a command line interface. Here is an explanation of each part:

  1. noti: It is a command-line utility used to send desktop notifications.
  2. -w: It is an option in noti that specifies the process ID of a running process.
  3. ${process_id}: It is a placeholder variable that should be replaced with the actual process ID value.

In summary, when you run the command "noti -w ${process_id}", it will send a desktop notification. The content of the notification may vary depending on the specific use case, but it is typically used to alert the user about the completion of a process or task identified by the provided process ID.
