Or it might be that Alex was simply looking for /proc/pid directory. There
is no such things. What is meant is e.g. /proc/738 which is a directory
correspoonding to the pid 738.
Is there Linux nowdays without procfs? In the old days, procfs was optional
and there were two sets of ps: one that supported /proc and the other which
did work without it.
