dtpstree - display a tree of processes

dtpstree [options] [PID|USER]

dtpstree shows running processes as a tree. It is a reimplementation of pstree from PSmisc for FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, DragonFly BSD, and possibly other modern BSD variants. It also works without /proc and will show the full set of processes in a jail even if init is not present.
