fork1 — create a
fork1(struct proc *p1,
int flags, void (*func)(void *),
void *arg, register_t *retval,
struct proc **rnewprocp);
creates a new process out of p1, which should be the
current thread. This function is used primarily to implement the
vfork(2) system calls, as well as the
The flags argument is used to control the behavior of the fork and is created by a bitwise-OR of the following values:
fdshare(). The default behavior is to copy the table through
SIDLstate. The default behavior is to make it runnable and add it to the run queue.
sigactsshare(). The default behavior is to copy the signal actions from the parent with
FORK_SHAREVMmust also be set.
If func is not
the new thread will begin execution by calling this function. It defaults to
child_return, which returns to userland.
If arg is not
it is the argument to the previous function. It defaults to a pointer to the
If retval is not
NULL, the PID of the child process will be stored in
*retval on successful completion.
If rnewprocp is not
NULL, the newly created thread is stored in
*rnewprocp on successful completion.
Upon successful completion of the fork operation,
fork1() returns 0. Otherwise, the following error
values are returned:
RLIMIT_NPROCon the total number of processes under execution by this user id would be exceeded.
fork1 function semantics are specific
to OpenBSD. Other BSD
systems have different semantics.
