I'm aware that ps -W shows both but what I was driving at in my own befuddled way is, shouldn't both top and ps be capable of reporting on both, i.e bring top in to line with ps?
Based on what Corrina said this would mean a major change to one or other of the utilities since top uses /proc but ps uses the cygwin api. Hence which, if any, should change?
