I'm looking at the man page for the "ps" command -- specifically at 
the part involving the date and time format for the "start" output 
field -- and am scratching my head. It says that the default format 
string for the date and time when a task was started, if it was 
started within the past 24 hours, is "%l:ps.1p". But to me, it 
looks as if the correct format is "%l:%M%p". Is the man page wrong, 
or am I missing something here?
