I want to understand the behavior of epoll - how is behaves when the process which has some sockets registered with epoll does a fork(). These are the aspects that I am particularly interested in

1. What if the child process never closes the sockets that it has inherited from the parent, and then proceeds to do exec.
a) I understand that on fork() all of the parent's (P) open sockets are inherited by child (C)

b) If C doesnt care to close
