= Description
A Ruby interface for gathering process table information. This is a pure
Ruby implementation that unpacks data out of your /proc filesystem.
= Synopsis
require 'sys/proctable'
include Sys
# Everything{ |p|
puts p.comm
# Just one process
s =
puts s.comm
# Return the results as an array of ProcTableStructs
a =
a.each do |p|
= Constants
Returns the current version number for this package (as a string).
= Class Methods
Returns an array of fields available on the current OS.{ |s| ... }
If no pid is included as an argument, in block form it
returns a struct of type ProcTableStruct for every process in the proc
table. Otherwise it returns an array of ProcTable struct's. If a pid
is provided it will return a single ProcTable struct for that pid, or
nil if it is not found.
= Exception Classes
ProcTable::Error < StandardError
Raised if the /proc directory is unreadable and/or unmounted.
= Supported fields
You can view the supported fields with the "fields()" class method.
= Future Plans
Support for 2.6 and 2.7 if requested.
= Notes
The cmdline string is limited to 80 characters, except for those processes
which you (or your program) own.
= Known Bugs
None that I am aware of. Please log any bugs on the RubyForge project page at
