The child is a copy of the parent.  Therefore, if in the
parent you open a few file descriptors, those are the ones
you should close in the child.  That is exactly what I've
done in the past when I forked a child, and it has worked
very well.

I suspect Stevens would make an exception to his guideline
in the event that closing a file descriptor results in
library routine failures.
