NEED SUMMARY: where is wait3()

From: Gordon Vickers (

     Someone recently asked how one copes with the lack of a wait3() call
  on Solaris. I now find myself with a similar porting problem.

     I need the functionality of the wait3() call but I am prohibited
   from using the compatibility libraries.

     How does one spawn a child process on Solaris, and not end up with
  a bunch of zombies !

     Thank you;
