How long

Ruby script to search for a running process and tell you how long it's been running:

$ howlong emacs
Process /usr/bin/emacs24 has been active for 2 days, 2 hours, 12 minutes and 37 seconds
$ howlong iceweasel
Process iceweasel has been active for 13 hours, 58 minutes and 21 seconds

With IRB:

$ rake console

Process emacs has been active for 33 minutes and 25 seconds
 => nil
2.1.2 :002 >
