This should be trivial, but it's defeated me completely
I want to combine the u option with custom formating, specifically
I have a script that I'm running called doPingY,
ps aux | grep doPingY | grep -v grep
shows me that the program is running but all I want is the etime
gives me exactly the format I want, but it doesn't pick up my batch job. To see that I need the u option. But
produces a conflicting options error
Any advise would be most appreciated!!
