Oh crap. I think you're right. And I think I even asked for that. ;-)


Is it a crime to use the full word "Processor"? At least on my machine, the output width is still far less than 80 characters, so the full word should be no problem. But I don't know if there are other strange topologies out there that would take up more space...? (it certainly would in the graphic output...)

Ah. Maybe in -v mode, we should print bytes, not KB or MB. Completely un-ambiguous that way.
