http://www.linuxquestions.org – There is a program at work called processsubmit - it is kinda like a ping command plus a ps command - written in c. we execute is manually and it pings all the processes in a region to make sure everything is running. instead of doing it manually, I cron jobbed it and make it pop out in an xterm; the command is surrounded in backticks and that is all it takes to populate an array, with a foreach and a sleep 1 command an xterm popups up on my window and lists the processes status, line by line. i enjoy seeing the results of the command and if a process comes up as missing (HowTos)
