source code for execv, fork, etc.


I want to look at the source code for execv, fork, etc.
Anyone know some good sites that allow me to browse the repository online - I don't want to
install unix/linux on my machine.

Hi maxy88,

You do not have to install linux to browse its source code ... Simply download the source packages/kernel that you are interested in and read them on any system you like

Cheers!

Function execve using kernel system call do_execve, source of which you can find: http://www.ibiblio.org/navigator-bin/navigator.cgi?fs/exec.c
with fork() function same think (using do_fork), source code you can read: http://www.ibiblio.org/navigator-bin/navigator.cgi?kernel/fork.c
