I need to figure out how much memory process really takes.
For example, i am running 100 perl scripts, they are all the
same source and i guess some memory is shared among them
(mostly perl interperter i guess). So, i need to know how much
memory is shared and how much memory is used for each new
running script (including buffers, e.t.c.). What command shoud
do the trick and with what options?

In case you have the PROCFS mounted (usually under /proc) you can get a detailed listing of the memory map of a process, together with the relevant flags for the various memory segments that indicate memory sharing etc. Try this:

cat /proc/<pid>/map

'<pid>' is of course to be replaced by the PID of the process you want to examine.
