ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Identify the following items in the source files of the Linux kernel:
• the definitions of the system calls by number,
• the implementation of system calls as library functions,
• the various process states,
• the implementation of the fork system call, and
• the data structure that represents processes.
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.
