ps doesn't show the full command line

I'm using OBSD 4.0 and when I type "ps" it doesn't show the whole command line used to run the process. I've read the manual and didn't see anything about it either. I'm sure there is a way to see the full command line used to run a process, does anyone know how?

Look under the 'w' option in the man page.
