Have you tried reading the man page on the "ps" command? There are examples/options in it that tell you how to output things exactly as you want them.

Spell out your words, please...text-speak isn't pleasant for anyone. Again, you need to read the man page on the ps command, and you may also want to read the man page on the strace command as well.
