your code is hard to read for me, part of the problem is that you used <pre> instead of <code> tags.

> What the child process finds at that passed address is exactly the same value that the parent wrote to that address

when did you write to that address?

If it's prior to forking, the value was copied.

If the effect happens after forking, it could be a bug in COW (at least I wouldn't expect this)

> but after the child writes to that address what happens behind the scenes is that that physical address is not overwritten in place,

I'd say that's pretty much a description of COW = Copy On Write

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
