University of Massachusetts Dartmouth CIS 370, Fall 2015 Lab 4 –More Process Management Objective This lab is designed to reiterate the importance of process control and management, particularly when a parent process is responsible for creating multiple children processes. Upon completion of this lab, you should have thorough understanding of the behavior of fork , wait , and exit system calls. Description This lab consists of two programming assignments. Please submit two separate C files (one for each part of the assignment). It would behoove you to review the lecture slides on processes (from last week’s lab) before you begin. 1. Triplet Prodigies Write a C program called lastnameTriplets that accepts 3 integer parameters. The program (parent process = P) should create 3 children, C 1 , C 2 , and C 3 , sequentially . C1 should print its PID, then calculate and print the sum of the three integers. C2 should print its PID, then calculate and print the product of the three integers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
