# man baby
BABY(1) USER COMMANDS BABY(1)
NAME BABY - create new process from two parent processes
SYNOPSIS BABY sex [ name ] SYSTEM V SYNOPSIS
/usr/5bin/BABY [ -sex ] [ -name ]
AVAILABILITY The System V version of this command is available with the Sys- tem V software installation option. Refer to Installing
BABY is initiated when one parent process polls another server process through a socket connection (BSD) or through pipes in the system V implementation. BABY runs at a low priority for approximately 40 weeks then terminates with heavy system load. Most systems require constant monitering when BABY reaches it's final stages of execution.
Older implentations of BABY required that the initiating process not be present at the time of completion, In these versions the initiating process is awakened and notified of the results upon completion. Modern versions allow both parent processes to be active during the final stages of BABY.
example% BABY -sex m -name fred
OPTIONS -sex option indicating type of process created. -name process identification to be attaced to the new process.
RESULT Successful execution of the BABY(1) results in new process being created and named. Parent processes then typically broadcast messages to all other processes informing them of their new status in the system.
BUGS The SLEEP command may not work on either parent processes for some time afterward, as new BABY processes constantly send interrupts which must be handled by one or more parent. BABY processes upon being created may frequently dump in /tmp requireing /tmp to be cleaned out frequently by one of the parent processes.
The original AT&T version was provided without instuctions regarding the created process, this remains in current implementations.
