Hello All,
I was wondering if it was possible to speed up a fork()/exec() pair
by using clone() to do something like vfork(). At this point I realized
that I had no idea what happend if you tried to call exec() from a process
that shared a lot of things with another process. I would really appreciate
it if someone could comment on this.
