I was looking at the list of possible process statuses in the man page 
for the ps command on 9front and there are several different statuses 
I'm seeing on my system that are not in the list.  I am seeing Pread, 
Await and Rendez on the majority of my processes and Pwrite and Open on 
a few and none of those are listed in the man page.

Any tips on where to find a more accurate/complete list?

On my system (9front) ps(1) states:

	Syscall       performing the named system call.

Which is what you're seeing.  For the complete list,
have a look here: /sys/src/9/port/systab.h:/sysctab/

I see...

That certainly could have been made less clear :-)

Maybe it would have helped to have put "Syscall" in parenthesis or 
quotes or something; as it is it looks like the rest of the entries in 
the list and I took it to mean that "Syscall" (literally) could show up 
as a status.


Thank you!
