I've gotten a lot of replies, so I thought to give a blanket "Thank you"
because pstree is just what I wanted. You might actually be as suprised
as I was when I found that both Solaris and Linux both of them (and some
others, but I forget which ones) do happen to have an option to ps
itself, tha gives the same as a pstree listing, which is why I asked
about options. Doesn't matter, I'm quite pleased now, so again: Thanks!
