GITPS(1) General Commands Manual GITPS(1)


gitps - A process viewer/killer


gitps [-hvcblp]


This manual page documents briefly the gitps command.

gitps is an interactive process viewer/killer. It calls internally the ps(1) utility.

More extensive documentation on gitps and the other gnuit tools is available in info format, try 'info gnuit'.

Running `gitps' is self explanatory. Use the `arrows', `PageUp', `PageDown', `Home', `End', `^N', `^P', `^V', `ESC v', `Space' and `Backspace' to move in the list, `^L' to refresh it, `Enter' to change the default signal and `F10', `q' or `^X ^C' to leave.

You can change these keys, just read the GITPS-Setup, GITPS-Color, GITPS-Monochrome and GITPS-Keys sections in the configuration files gnuitrc.TERM.

gitps is part of the GNU Interactive Tools.


A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the Info files.
