Hello all!

Can somebody help me write a perl script which totals the total amount of time that each user is using on the system, as well as the number of processes the user is using.

As example:
The output of your program would be the following:

root 00:01:18 13
ananias 00:00:00 1
dias 00:00:00 1
peter 00:00:00 1

Pipe the result of a call to ps through your script and parse it, saving the items you want and calculating your totals. ps is different for every system, so do a man ps and when you have more information and you've actually made an attempt, come back and we can help more.
