The combination of ps and the grep command
 
Hi,

Could anyone tell me what the following command does in linux.

"ps -efww|grep vnc"

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Sujatha.

Have you looked up the man page for both commands? It seems fairly straight forward.

So what I think this pipeline does is print a list of all vnc processes. I didn't look up the -efww part though, so you may want to check up on it.
