Process Creation

Q2. What is Process Creation?

Ans. A process may create several new processes, via a create-process system call, during the course of execution. The creating process is called a parent process, and the new processes are called the children of that process. Each of these new processes may in turn create other processes, forming a tree of processes.

Most operating systems (including UNIX and the Windows family of operating systems) identify processes according to a unique process identifier (or pid), which is typically an integer number.
