Its not a devil. The character is a question is a daemon (not demon). A daemon describes a process, like any other operating system. Windows users call them programs and *nix users call them daemons. One definition of daemon is a help (deity) neither good nor evil. Why does he carry a pitch fork? Well that's another Unix thing: "fork -- create a new process" Feel free to read that man (manual) page for fork: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=fork&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=FreeBSD+4.9-RELEASE&format=html Why is it called a beastie? Say BSD really fast and what sound does it make? Why is beastie wearing gym shoes (chuck taylors)? Well I don't have an answer for that one. A very nice description exists on the FreeBSD web site: http://www.freebsd.org/copyright/daemon.html If I have made any errors or omissions, please correct me. Pete ===== ESCape with VI.
