I could not help but notice your multiple attempts at expresing this particular concept often, that is...an implied necessity of a book that explains what's going on under the kernel hood. I agree that such a book would rapidly be out of date, but I also see the necessity thereof. So, it's time to question the assumption that the information you want available should be in "a book". Many websites have "annotation" as a form of ad-hoc documentation (e.g. php.net). Why not have someone take a crack at documenting the FreeBSD kernel, and perhaps use some annotation feature to create a "living" document which (hopefully) comes close to describing the kernel architechture? If you want to track a moving target, perhaps you need to use a moving track? ------ Dave Hayes - Consultant - Altadena CA, USA - [EMAIL PROTECTED] >>> The opinions expressed above are entirely my own <<< "What's so special about the Net?
