linux kernel : processes

linux kernel : processes

A process is usually defined as an instance of a program in execution; thus, if 12 users are running vi at once, there are 12 separate processes ( although they can share the SAME executable code).

Processes areoften called tasks or threads in the Linux source code.

By Daniel P. Bovet, Marco Cesati, ch.3, page 79.
