Python proc vs thread
Posted on 2013-12-28
In python - what is the difference between a process, a child process (that has been forked), the output of a fork-exec and a thread? Actually I get the difference between the first two - (I think) that when forking you wind up with a new process that is a virtual copy of an existing parent process only running separately with a new PID. But I lost the trail when they got into fork-exec and then the thread concept.
