I am trying to copy some files and folders on a
I do it like so:
sudo cp source destination & to run it in the background.
I see there are three
cp processes now when I run
ps aux | grep cp: One of them is the
grep command itself, but the other two are copies of the above
cp command: one with the entire command listed above and the other without the
sudo in front. The PIDs of the two processes also differs by one.
1. Why the two processes? The owner of both is listed as root.
