What is the difference between a process task and threads?

Submitted by: Administrator
process and task as synonymous. One or more threads
together form a process. The threads, two or more belong to
same process, share same address space of the process and
can access all the global variable of the process.
Where as two processes can't access each other's address
space and hence cant access their global variable. Two
processes can talk with each other using IPC.

what are the things that are acquired by the child
process from the parent process?

File descriptors [including socket descriptor].
The whole text segment.
Environment variables.
PPID is PID of parent process.
