yea it is a homework question.

It looked like homework to me too, but I thought I could help him out and point him in a direction for research purposes without "giving the answer" to him.

Please don't delete this post. It seems like an honest interest in UNIX. I didn't want to stunt their view of UNIX.

Overall Killerserv, you are correct and I agree as well.
