Submission + - Finally, procfs for Mac OS X

An anonymous reader writes: Have a burning desire to browse processes as files on your Mac like you can on most UNIX type systems? Amit Singh over at the Mac OS X Internals site has released an open source procfs filesystem for OS X. The implementation uses Google's MacFUSE which brought all the goodness of user filesystems to Mac earlier this year. In addition to things like Mach task and thread info, virtual memory, ports etc... The procfs also shows motionsensor and lightsensor data so you can simply cat these files to get sensor readings. Just like on Linux. There's also code to show TPM chip info. Cool! PS: didn't know kernel is pid 0 :)
