12 shows the basic idea for our example hello scenario. There are two concurrent processes in our example scenario: the shell process and the hello process. Initially, t,he shell process is running alone, waiting for input on the command line. ask it to run the hello program, the shell carries out our request by invoking a special function known as a system call that passes control to the operating system. The operating system saves the shell's context, creates a new hello process and its "context, anCI then passes control to the new helfo process.

You will learn the basic concepts of concurrency, including how to write threaded programs, in Chapter 12. 3 Virtual Memory Virtual memory is an abstraction that provides each process with the illusion that it has exclusive use of the main memory. Each process has the same uniform View of memory, Which is known as its virtual address space. 13. ) In Linux, the topmost region of the address space is reserved fol code and data in the operating system that is common to all processes. The lower region df the address space holds the cdile and data defined by'the user's process.
