Whenever you write a program that prints its own process ID, I've always (without any exception) received numbers ranging in the tens of thousands. Never less, never higher.
I was just wondering, why is are the process ID #s so high? Are the ones below it all system-related processes?
And then when I run the program again, it prints out an ID that is several hundred above the previous execution... what happens between these two executions that come right after each other?
