libproc-dev: library for accessing process information from /proc

 These are the header files for libproc. Some packages using libproc
 to access process information from /proc need these to compile.

procps: /proc file system utilities

 This package provides command line and full screen utilities for browsing
 procfs, a "pseudo" file system dynamically generated by the kernel to
 provide information about the status of entries in its process table
 (such as whether the process is running, stopped, or a "zombie").

 snice, sysctl, tload, top, uptime, vmstat, w, and watch.
