  True...yet ps isn't that portable either (don't know, does it exist
with windows and macintosh platform?)

>Does a 'Virtual Memory' size exist instead of just RSS? Perhaps that is

Perhabs I'm misunderstanding you, but that's included in my patch.
(VmSize, VmRSS, VmData, and VmStk).

Yes, that's the best solution I think. Only problem is, I can only provide
the linux part (with /proc) and the general unix part (with getrusage).
The show memory for windows/macintos/foo-os has to be written by others
I fear :(
