all entries in /proc seems to be empty?


hi..

i was just going through the /proc filesystems..
but i find that all entries in whatever directories i looked into had empty files and some symbolic links to certain directories like / and HOME.

so if i had to collect some information abt a process .. like what all libraries it is using and the function calls made by it during it's running.. sholud i look into some other place or can i retrieve it from here itself..
???

any idea??

thnks
