Description Karl Berry 1998-11-30 11:35:49 UTC
Linux top, unlike the standard top from NWU, does not work
in an emacs shell buffer.  It actually wants a
cursor-addressable screen, as far as I can tell anyway.  I
often wish to just check quickly what the top processes are,
once, with no refresh, while in Emacs.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1998-11-30 20:46:59 UTC
The displaying of top will not work correctly within Emacs. You will
need to use ps or other alternative.
