A fork() Primer
Article describing the Unix fork() function call.
"fork() can be thought of as a ticket to power. Power can
sometimes be thought of as a ticket to destruction. Therefore, you
should be careful while messing with fork() on your system,
especially while people are cranking their nearly-late semester
projects and are ready to nuke the first organism that brings the system
to a halt. It's not that you should never play with fork(),
you just have to be cautious. It's kind of like sword-swallowing; if
you're careful, you won't disembowel yourself." A fork() Primer
