Re: Reading a process control block

Hi,

firstly, which unix are you using.
now if you are using a unix that supports the /proc area which stores all the info of the processes what ou can do is write a c program that reads the "pid number" file in the /proc area. now the process block info is stored in a structure in these files. you can simply go on reading these structures

also read "man proc" for more info

I hope this should solve your problem
