  Have you tried (apropos "pid")?

  (Curiously, the only Common Lisp implementation I have here that does
  /not/ accept the above is Allegro CL in their "ansi mode", in which they
  force you to write (apropos "pid" nil nil t) if you want case-insensitive
  matches -- there is no way to make the last argument default to true!
  No wonder case-sensitivity hurts more than it should.)
