At least tell us what you've found out, and we'll tell you if you're heading in the right direction.

Evelyne - we are not a homework service. This goes for anyone who comes here to ask us to do their work for them. If you can show us what you have come up with yourself and specify which areas you need help on we can help you by giving you pointers (as with the above suggestion to read man syscall). We have all either left school (and don't wish to repeat it) or have our own homework to do, so it's unfair to expect us to take time to do your own work.

If you genuinely don't understand the work you have been set you should speak to your teacher.

This seems more like stuff you can just look up in your course material rather than concepts we can help you grasp. This is just a research question which can be answered via research. It's really a straighforward question.

hmmm, I see,

no attempt made at all it would seem.
Probably google would give better results than posting here
but maybe the OP hasn't even bothered to do that?
