Hi,
     I am writing a C++ program in a Solaris unix environment.
Now my question is how would I write a command in my program to know all the
processes that are running under my userid  presently?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Run a system call with the following UNIX command

ps -u <userid> | grep -v ps | wc -l

The grep ensures that you don't count the ps command as one of the processes.
