PS1, Line 176:  /proc/$0/
> Is the ctime of this directory documented to be the process start time?
Good point.
After some research it seems that making 'stat' on the /proc/ directory entries is not the
reliable way of checking the start time as they might be updated after startup (even the ctime).
I guess using stat() would result the same issue here.

I found 2 solutions:
1) Invoking "ps -o lstart --pid <pid>" via command line
2) There is tricky solution mentioned here in the second comment:
Basically, you can get theprocess_start_time from /proc/<pid>/stat (22nd value), but
that is the time difference between system boot and process start. In order to get the desired
start_time you have to get the boot_time from /proc/uptime and using the current time you
can calculate it from these.

I would vote for 1)
What do you think?
