> There is a maximum amount of running processes, which implies that spawn will block if the limit has been reached. However, the project sheet has no mention of it. What's the expected behaviour of spawn when the max amount of running processes has been reached?
There is a limit to how many processes are ever supported. An attempt to exceed this limit would be an error (such as in a real OS, a call to fork() for fail). The project sheet states that there will be no errors in the input files, and that their data will be consistent, so the process limit will never be reached (and thus never tested).
