    Identify running processes

    Hi all

    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on an HP laptop;

    I suspect that there is a runaway process on the system;

    How can I tell a process name, firstly from a command prompt ( preferably directing the list to a file )
    and secondly is there a way to identify the process name from within a Java ( or C++ ) program?

    Thanks in Advance
