htop is an interactive process viewer, like top, but greatly enhanced in many respects. The main code base relies on the virtual directory '
/proc', which does not exist in OS X. However, thanks to the generosity and smarts of Andy Armstrong, an OS X port is available, and can be cloned by:
$ git clone git://github.com/AndyA/htop-osx.git
Building this under Snow Leopard requires you to checkout the '
$ git checkout -b osx origin/osx
and set your '
CFLAGS' environmental variable to specify a 32-bit build:
$ export CFLAGS="-m32"
before the actual build:
$ ./autogen.sh $ ./configure $ make $ make installFor those of you that want to skip all this, I have made the Snow Leopard build available here.
