Yes, you are right!
--get --pid
works on Linux.

--get --membind --pid
will give "Function not implemented"

$ /tmp/hwloc-1.1rc2/utils/hwloc-bind --get --membind --pid 344
hwloc_get_membind failed (errno 38 Function not implemented)

I see. It's getting difficult then. I believe that in this case more explanatory
error message would be enough.

Thanks!
