Several readers responded. Most suggested getting a copy of 'lsof'. One reader
included sample output from the program. It looks just like what the doctor
ordered! The source can be gotten from:

| The latest release of lsof is always available via anonymous ftp |
| from Look in pub/tools/unix/lsof. |
Thanks again to all.
