Summary
fork.2: Add a simple use pattern

It seems to be a nice idea to show how fork() is usually used in practice. This
may act as a guide to developers who want to quickly recall how to use the
fork() function.

i'd use err(3) instead, but that's just my preference

  • Use pid_t
  • Use err() instead of perror
bcr added a subscriber: bcr.

OK from manpages. Thanks for the example, I think it is great to have.
