pmap.c : Can you please try another name for it?

Hello Rik,

there is a nice little toy called "pmap.c" around for several years, now.
Should we consider?

 * pmap.c: implementation of something like Solaris' /usr/proc/bin/pmap
 * for linux
 * Author: Andy Isaacson <>
 * Fri Jun 18 1999
 * Updated Mon Oct 25 1999
 * - calculate total size of shared mappings
 * - change output format to read "writable/private" rather than "writable"
 * Justification: the formatting available in /proc/<pid>/maps is less
 * than optimal. It's hard to figure out the size of a mapping from
 * that information (unless you can do 8-digit hex arithmetic in your
 * head) and it's just generally not friendly. Hence this utility.
 * I hereby place this work in the public domain.
 * Compile with something along the lines of
 * gcc -O pmap.c -o pmap
