"Top command used to display output of top.
To use top command, a version supporting batch mode (-b option) is needed.
On Mac OSX top command doesn't support this, so ps command
is used by default instead.
If you modify this the number and order of elements displayed
should be the same as top command to have the sort commands
working properly, that is 12 elements with the 2 first being
PID and USER and the last 4 being %CPU, %MEM, TIME and COMMAND.
A format string where %s will be replaced with `frame-width'."
