Supressing Fields w/ AWK


im piping the results of ps into awk. the problem im having is that ps prints out the column heading, like this:

PID
3458
3631
3634
3635
3639
3640
3648
3700
3701
3702

From there I want to pipe it elsewhere, but having the PID at top is really screwing me up. Any way to get rid of that header?

this is the line im using to generate this:
ps u | awk '$4 <= .5 {print $2}' | sort -g

Use sed to delete the first line.

ps u | sed -e 1d | awk '$4 <= .5 {print $2}' | sort -g

Or simply use the 'h' options to ps, so it does nog print the header...
Code:
ps uh | awk '$4 <= .5 {print $2}' | sort -g
