    Is there a way to install free on mac os x? it exists by default on centos. I tried copying the binary from centos and that did not work.

    Example output: (on the centos box)
    Code:
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:          1280        149       1130          0          0          0
    -/+ buffers/cache:        149       1130
    Swap:            0          0          0

    I know, but this is much simpler and shows exactly what I want

    as best I can tell ... no.

    Maybe vm_stat will give you what you need...
