    BABY - create new process from two parent processes


    /usr/bin/BABY [ -sex ] [ -name ]

    example: BABY -sex m -name jason


    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 monitoring when BABY reaches final
    stages of execution.


    Successful execution of BABY results in new process being created
    and named. Parent processes then typically broadcast messages to
    all other processes informing them of their new system status.

    The SLEEP command may not work on either parent processes for some
    time afterwards, 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 requiring
    /tmp to be cleaned out frequently by a parent process.

    a man page, is basically a help page in unix telling you syntax to run a program (command line based)... and what the function does...

    a far cry those the poorly guided windows help pages :(
