Wow, that's really long.  Maybe you can make it do it as an attachment?
That needs more work though.  Is there a way to make it not wrap the

On Linux systems pmap should be always available.  On SunOS pmap is
available and useful too, but /proc/self/map (map, not maps) is
available but apparently has some kind of binary format.  Not sure about
any other systems.
