getproc routine for Linux?


Hello,

I am new to the forum and to Linux. Does anyone know of the Linux equivalent to the AIX getprocs() or getprocs64()routine for C language?

Thanks in advance!

Not familiar with AIX at all, but under linux, I guess the proc filesystem can give you process information.
When mounted, you can read the files from C.

Thanks for the response...I was hoping for an existing C routine. I see the information in the proc filesystem but was hoping there was a Linux routine that can go out and retrieve the information like AIX's getproc() function. If not then I will have to create one...I just thought that there would be one already since getting process information is pretty common in application programming.
