 If is still a mind for (IMHO) terrible work with 'ps'... not sure if 
it's interesting, but exist cross-platforms library for processes 
information loading - the libgtop. Supports:

	* All versions of Linux
	* FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD
	* BSD/OS
	* Digital Unix
	* Solaris
	* ..and may be others

 Sure, it's in C :-)
