Write a program to find sum of even numbers in parent process and sum of odd numbers in child process.
Input : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Output : Parent process Sum of even no. is 6 Child process Sum of odd no. is 10
Explanation: Here, we had used fork() function to create two processes one child and one parent process.
- For child process fork() returns 0 so we can calculate sum of all odd numbers in child process.
- fork() returns value greater than 0 for parent process so we can calculate sum
- for all even numbers there by just simply checking the value returned by fork().
Parent process Sum of even no. is 30 Child process Sum of odd no. is 25
