fork() -> defunct
Posted on 1998-02-17
With a fork command I can create a child process.
But when the child process "finish", it's not realy terminated, why it go in state defunct.
How can I realy terminate a child process without this state?
The problems still in the number of childs defunct that can I have. I maked a par test and the number is a number terminated. I my situation I need create some child that make some jobs in "background", but with this situation I reach at one point that I can't create more child (about 8000 time).
