Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me in using the ptrace in C. I have to fork a process. The child is going to execute another program and i have to trace the number of system calls and number of instructions that the other program issued. This has to be done with ptrace. I read the man pages but they weren't helpful at all. This has to work on any linux x86 machines. Do you know of any good tutorials or sample codes on how to use ptrace? Thanks a lot for any help.  
p.s. i have to finish this by tomorrow night, so i really need some help quickly if it's possible
