Can someone explain what is going on please?
Both processes share the same
Quoting from the linux man page of fork(2):
The child inherits copies of the parent's set of open file descriptors. Each file descriptor in the child refers to the same open file description (see open(2)) as the corresponding file descriptor in the parent. This means that the two descriptors share open file status flags, current file offset, and signal-driven I/O attributes (see the description of F_SETOWN and F_SETSIG in fcntl(2)).
Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
