    If you want a better answer, you need to provide any sort of system
    details.

    Apologies! My Compaq Tru64 v4.0F doesn't seem to have a man entry for
    top.
    I have found a man entry for top on redhat linux but the linux output
    is slightly different from my Tru64 output.

    Ah, so does it have any man entries at all? If not, try:
    catman
    to generate your manpages (might not be that on Tru64, I don't know).
     

    Try getting the manpage. I would imagine a google for
    Tru64 top manpage
    might get you something useful.

    Tru64 at least 4.0F and IIRC any other version didn't come with
    top. It's likely someone compiled/installed it additional,
    perhaps the man page is on the system but not in users manpath,
    I'd search the system /usr/local is a good idea and if the man
    page isn't on the box, simply recompile the package.

    If you can't find the man page anywhere on the system, one thing
    to try is to download the package from a Linux or *BSD distribution
    and try to port it. Succeed and you not only get the man page,
    but the output ends up the same as on that other system so the
    differences are gone.

    Ok Now that we know you are running Tru64 I can provide a little more
    information for you.
    The version of top for Tru64 that most often gets installed is the one from
    the open source software collection.
    The doentation for it is here...
    http://h30097.www3.hp.com/demos/ossc/doc/top-3.5beta5/ Although this is for
    the version which shipped with 5.1b rather than your ancient 4.0f.
    The version for 4.x is no longer available from HP so I don't know if you
    can get the docs for it.

    The version of top I've used under Tru64 was William LeFebvre's.
