ps now has a new option: -R. This lists processes in order by parent/child status, and indents to make it visually clear. It looks like this. I wish someone had done this 15 years ago.
I guess this is more or less the same as “–forest” on Linux, which probably is the option I use the most. Wonder how long it takes before anyone in charge of Solaris coreutils discovers the usefullness of this feature.
You are aware of http://htop.sourceforge.net/ ?
I know, no direct comparision because of bloat, but i consider any Linuxinstallation without it as broken. And it really irked me when i had to enable linprocfs just for this, when i used the *bsds.
