NAME

       pman - A graphical process manager.

DESCRIPTION

   Warning:
       The Pman application has been superseded by the Observer application. Pman will be removed
       in R16.

       A graphical tool used to inspect the Erlang  processes  executing  either  locally  or  on
       remote nodes. It is also possible to trace events in the individual processes.

EXPORTS

       start()
       start(Excluded)
       start_notimeout()
       start_notimeout(Excluded)

              Types:

                 Excluded = [Module]
                  Module = atom()

              Starts   Pman.   It   will   use   the   previously   saved   trace   settings   in
              HOME/.erlang_tools/pman.opts, where HOME is the user's home directory,  if  such  a
              file  exists.  Otherwise  standard  trace  settings  will be used. The return value
              should be ignored.

              Excluded is a list of module names. If the argument is present, processes currently
              executing in any of these modules will not be shown by Pman.

              start/0,1  will  fail  unless  the  start-up  succeeds  within  20 seconds, whereas
              start_notimeout/0,1 will wait indefinitely.

       proc(Process)
       proc(A, B, C)

              Types:

                 Process = pid() | atom()
                 A = B = C = integer()

              Starts a Pman trace window for the specified process. The return  value  should  be
              ignored.

              The  process  to  trace is given either by its pid or by its registered name. It is
              also possible to use proc/3 to trace the pid represented as <A,B,C>.
