I finally figured out how to change the format of the time command, but
I've run into an even bigger problem now.
For some reason, the memory usage and i/o operations are always listed
as 0. A sample output is:
0.480u 1.190s 0:06.63 25.1% 0+0k 0+0io 92pf+0w
No matter which commands I run (memory intensive or i/o intensive), both
the mem stats and i/o stats always remain at 0.
Is there some setting in the kernel that has to be activated for this?
I do have the /proc system being used....
Or is the 'time' command simply not compatible on Linux systems?
