By runtime I simply mean when the server is running. I can specify the path to the PID file in the configuration file, but if I don't, it usually sticks it in "logs/nginx.pid". But that logs/nginx.pid could be anywhere I built the server from source (it specifies a default path when you run configure). So the file could be in /bla/bla2/bla3/logs/nginx.pid.

What I'm trying to find is the entire path of where it sticks the PID file when you start the server. For now, I'm specifying the full path in the path file, and I can extract that using the configuration functions regularly enough, but it's a bit annoying. So I'm wondering if I can get it's path when it's not specified. Just wondering if there's a better way. I will take a look at events module too, thanks.
