./sysutils/htop, Enhanced version of top utility

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.3.0, Package name: htop-3.3.0, Maintainer: nia

This is htop, an interactive process viewer.

Comparison between 'htop' and 'top'

* In 'htop' you can scroll the list vertically and horizontally
to see all processes and full command lines.
* In 'top' you are subject to a delay for each unassigned
key you press (especially annoying when multi-key escape
sequences are triggered by accident).
* 'htop' starts faster ('top' seems to collect data for a while
before displaying anything).
* In 'htop' you don't need to type the process number to
kill a process, in 'top' you do.
* In 'htop' you don't need to type the process number or
the priority value to renice a process, in 'top' you do.
* In 'htop' you can kill multiple processes at once.
* 'top' is older, hence, more tested.

htop: Fix options for selecting curses type

Users can now select ncurses for enabling unicode characters on NetBSD.
It was not sufficient (or even correct, most likely) to use "wide-curses"
for this.
