Hello everyone,

Sorry for taking so long on summary but I got no reply.

Original question:
I am trying to trace the full command process that has been taken over
init, but ps -ef limits the command field to eighty characters. For
ps -ef|grep qab gives this output:
      qab 4955 1 0 Mar 12 ? 0:02
/pbt/opt/jdk1.1.3/bin/sparc/green_threads/java -classpath

As you can see, the command field '/pbt/opt...' is limited to eighty
characters and has chopped off the rest. The above is just one example
there a way to see the complete argument? I have searched the archives
to no avail.

The machine is Ultra 2 with Solaris 2.5.1.
