Subjectpmap.c : Can you please try another name for it?
Hello Rik,

there is a nice little toy called "pmap.c" around for several years, now.
Should we consider?

* pmap.c: implementation of something like Solaris' /usr/proc/bin/pmap
* for linux
* Author: Andy Isaacson <>
* Fri Jun 18 1999
* Updated Mon Oct 25 1999
* - calculate total size of shared mappings
* - change output format to read "writable/private" rather than "writable"
* Justification: the formatting available in /proc/<pid>/maps is less
* than optimal. It's hard to figure out the size of a mapping from
* that information (unless you can do 8-digit hex arithmetic in your
* head) and it's just generally not friendly. Hence this utility.
* I hereby place this work in the public domain.
* Compile with something along the lines of
* gcc -O pmap.c -o pmap
