comment Are the states of processes which are ready and scheduled to wait “S”?
PSkocik said "Processes that aren't technically waiting on a resource will internally be runnable, but they will still show up as being in the S state (=waiting on the scheduler to put them on a processor core)." But according to your reply, those processes are in state "R" not "S", correct?

Thanks. In "the process that is making the observation is", what is after "is"?

If a process is waiting on an internet connection, is it in interruptible sleep or uninterruptible sleep?

thanks. (1) Is there no distinguish between running processes, and ready but scheduled to run processes? (2) What does "truly idle processes" mean? blocked processes?

comment How to list all leaf files under a directory in reverse time order?
thanks. is there some convenient way to list the (possibly relative wrt the starting directory, but may be absolute) pathname of each file in the ordered list? (pathname, because it saves for further finding a file from a given basename, and removes ambiguity for files with same basename; relative pathname, because absolute pathname may be long)
