Monitor the performance of any command-line program with this single command

I have been executing a lot of bash scripts and one-off processes on the linux command line recently, and was curious about how to monitor the CPU and memory usage of these processes as quickly as possible. Some of these processes seemed to bring my linux box to a screeching halt, and without instant resource monitoring I couldn't tell whether such a process was eating excessive RAM or CPU (or both?!)
