Re: ps Command

or

UNIX95= ps -e -o "pcpu args"

Check the blank space between = and ps

Re: ps Command

hey,

U need to try the XPG4 synopsis for doing this. I mean with the 'UNIX95' command. See man ps !

Re: ps Command

Hello George,

XPG4 is the "X/Open Portablility Guide, release 4", which describes how to *do* UN*X in a portable way. And the environment variable "UNIX95" enables the extensions to "ps" - it just has to exist, any value or even none is ok.

HTH,

Re: ps Command

Hi,

Even I was looking at using the -o option with ps. Using UNIX95= ps -o args,pcpu on HPUX 11 works fine. Can I assume that this will work with all further releases of HPUX and also is there another/better way of using ps -o.

Thanks
