ALIGNWARN 001 print alignment warning msgs
STARTING 002 being created
EXITING 004 getting shut down
PTRACED 010 set if ptrace (0) has been called

D uninterruptible sleep (usually IO)
R runnable (on run queue)

Z a defunct ("zombie") process

For BSD formats and when the "stat" keyword is used, additional letters
may be displayed:

W has no resident pages
< high-priority process
N low-priority task
L has pages locked into memory (for real-time and custom IO)

I posted this, cause there are someone jumping
into conclusions type: S/N = stopped,nice
or perhaps, swapped,nice

*Please use, man n command , everytime not sure -:)
n = a number, generally bet 1-9 inclusively

Carlos, thanks for pointing it out, it is in fact S=sleeping, not stopped. I may have mixed it in some of my posts, by mistake.
