Nice script, I just finished making it run on solaris 2.7
on sparc. I also changed the look slightly so that it
displays the username, pid, and command. Also, the script
now only displays processes the user running the script
owns. Finally the script refreshes the process list once
every 10 seconds. The only issue I have with the refresh
is that the scrollbar keeps reseting to the top, but I
haven't spent much time looking at it. Also, the
continue signal doesn't work


The code is posted below:
