My original message was:

On Solaris 2.4, do two processes running the same copy of a program share the
physical memory for the code or is it necessary to implement shared


This response pretty much summarizes it:

From: (Ray Trzaska)

two processes running the same code share the same copy of the code segment.
shared libraries is a way of fine graining the shared areas across multiple

the only stuff distinct across the processes is the stack, and writable
text areas.

Thanks to everyone who responded so quickly.
