    Thus spake Mr A.M. Kruczkowski:
    > A brief observation that on my system, cat of /proc/<pid>/cmdline gives

    neon:~$ cat -v /proc/2890/cmdline
    elm^@-f=kernelneon:~$ ps
    PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND
    2869 p1 S 0:00 -bash
    2890 p1 T 0:00 elm -f=kernel
    2899 p1 R 0:00 ps
    neon:~$

    It separates the argv components with \0s. Otherwise, you couldn't
    distinguish between
    rm the file
    and
    rm "the file"
    , etc.
