Question #1

The UNIX “Fork” command has been a critical aspect of network programming over the years. I would like you
to write a (roughly) one page summary of what the function does and what activities you’d expect to see in the
operating system after calling this function from a program. Please pay careful attention to the various states
that a process goes through and explain which states you’d expect each process to be in and why.
