What /proc file(s) have process information

I would like to access a single file from my 'C' program, which will give me all the processes which are running in the system. I see the individual task subdirectories within /proc, but would like to know if there is a summary file somewhere which gives consolidated information about the running processes somewhere under the /proc subdir struction.

THanks, Pat//

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
