Next: Lots of processes
Assignment 3: Forking Processes
The purpose of this assignment is to get you to play around with
fork and exec, and to try out a small experimental design.
- Pick up the fork program from the following URL
and examine it closely.
- Write a Makefile for the program, based on the Makefile from
the previous assignment. On the web page you will find a handout
about gmake, which is the GNU version of make.
- Compile and run the program. Make sure your output at least
resembles the output in the comment.
