Projects / xps


xps dynamically displays in an X Window the Unix processes as a tree or forest, the roots on the left and the leaf processes on the right. The status of each process (running, sleeping, stopped, etc.) can be indicated by a color. Different users appear as different colors. Process selection can be made per user, all users or through a regular expression pattern. A process can be selected to show ps information or to send the process a signal.

            Re: Anyone want to port this to GTK or QT?
            Since no takers in a couple of years, I've ported to GNOME/GTK.

            See gnopstree (

            There's still QT though.
