I wasn't very clear when I wrote that. I was think of a case like: $ gcc -o alloctest alloctest.c $ cp alloctest program1 $ cp alloctest program2 $ cp alloctest program3 where the three programs were identical but came from different files (specifically to keep the VM system from optimizing away the interesting parts). Anyway, thanks to everyone who responded. I thought that's the way it would work, but I don't know anything about the Linux implementation details to feel speek confidently about it. -- Kirk Strauser In Googlis non est, ergo non est.
