The /proc filesystem provides access to each process running on the
system. The size is not disk usage, but rather memory usage
(someone feel free to correct me). There are a number of tools
provided with the OS to manipulate these process through the decimal
number equiv. of the process id's. Don't delete these files. ;-)
