ps -Flww -p THE_PID
I was wondering what the purpose for double
w is? Is it the same as just one
man ps is saying:
w Wide output. Use this option twice for unlimited width. -w Wide output. Use this option twice for unlimited width.
either in this way
-w -w or any combination of these two.
one w is "wide", two w's is "weally wide"
With single 'w' output of 'ps' is truncated at terminal's window boundary. With two 'w' ('-ww') long lines may use several terminal rows to be completely visible. Reduce width of your terminal and you will easily notice the difference.
