This doesn't produce any output on my box.  (And 'ps e' under Debian 2.0
has the progname in the fifth field, too.)  This works...

ps e |awk '$5 ~ /PROG/ {print $1}'

...where PROG is the name of the program you're looking for.  (Looking at
the man page, it looks like == is a numerical operator... I can get it to
match numbers, but not strings.)  

I should learn more about awk... this method is a lot simpler than my

ps e | grep PROG | grep -v grep | awk '{print $1}'
