Re: Linux process...

it's offset address and not absolute address.
base addresses of your parent and child process will be different so
final absolute address (base + offset) will be different for both.

Hi All..

I am a beginner hacker, i want to learn Linux from scratch. I read
some resources on Linux's process management. Process duplicates it's
page table to it's child process, right? so i wrote demonstrate code
to prove this.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>

int main (void) {
  pid_t child;
  int stack_int;

  child = fork ();
  if (child == 0) {
      sleep (1); /* ;p */
      printf ("child process stack_int value %i, address: %p\n",
stack_int, &stack_int);
      exit (0);
    }
  if (child == -1) {
      perror ("fork");
      return -1;
    }
  stack_int = 32;
  printf ("main process stack_int value %i, address: %p\n", stack_int,
&stack_int);
  waitpid (child, NULL, 0);

  return 0;
}

The output is:
main process stack_int value 32, address: 0xbf9c66ec
child process stack_int value 8495092, address: 0xbf9c66ec

stack_int value is different from parent and it's child.

My question: why the stack_int has a same address between parent and
it's child ?, but confusedly... they have a different value, i was
though it should be different, since process duplicate it's page to
child, please explain me. ;)

Thanks before.
