Actually, it can:
#top p <pid>
follows a single process; add the 'b' flag for batch mode, and it produces
output suitable for redirecting to a file or piping to a program:
#top bp <pid> > filename
Use '^C' to stop the process, or the 'n' flag to specify how many
iterations to go through.
Do 'man top' for further detail.
