in reply to Let's do it transparently

I also run perl and system commands on Linux, HP-UX, AIX and a bit of Windows and got sick of the difference in these basic commands. Eventually I installed di on all systems. Works better than any default and gives predictable (and if wanted parsable) output. Problem solved.

ps is even worse, but Proc::ProcessTable made me write px, so I now have a ps that works the same on all (but windows).

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
