1.04 changes

A feature was added to allow one to accumulate information over all processes via user-specified Perl code. Prolog and epilog sections were added for initialization of Perl variables and to take final action on Perl code evaluated in between. The ps-variable order in GNU/Linux was changed to ensure that single-token attributes don't get messed up by multiple-token attributes.
