I have the need to display different information under the 'ps -ef' output. I have tried simply setting $0='my_new_name'; but this has no effect. I looked here 83181 but it did not offer any further information
I have tried making a small program which sets $0 and then forks to see if the child would pick up the new $0, but no such luck, still just displays (/usr/bin/perl -w ./test.pl
This makes sense because the process table is populated with the process information before the program is evaluated, but does anyone know of a way to do this under Solaris 8?
