See how long a given process has been running

Very helpful. Thanks. Here's a little variation that will pull the whole list if there's no argument following psup, done as a bash function rather than an individual script file:

### uptime of given process or everything if none given
psup () { if [ $1 ]; 
	then
		ps -ax -o etime,command -c | grep $1 ;
	else
		ps -ax -o etime,command -c | less ;
	fi
}

I'm sure there's a far more efficient way of writing that.
