How do I run the "ps -C cmdlist" command?

I am trying to run the command "ps -C commandlistargument" on HP-UX v11.00.
After I enter the following to identify commands begining with the string "Mpc":
$ ps -C Mpc

I get the following message:
$ ps: illegal option -- C
usage: ps [-edaflP] [-u ulist] [-g glist] [-p plist] [-t tlist] [-R prmgroup]

What do I need to do to get this command to run?

First do:

export UNIX95=

Then run the command.

Mott,

That's an XPG4 extension. You need to invoke XPG4 behaviour by adding the UNIX95 prefix thusly:

UNIX95= ps -C Mpc

Don't neglect the space after the "=" sign!
