(?) Step through a Program

From Bubba44hos on Fri, 05 May 2000

I have a question and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. My question is "sttep through a p[rogram being loaded into the system". If you could help, that would be great. Thank you for your time, Brian

(!) Argh!
What does this mean? First "step through a program being loaded into the system" is not a question; it's a directive.
Does this (instructor?) want you to explain how to "single step" through a program (using a debugger like 'gdb')? Does he or she want you to explain the process of how programs get "loaded into" (installed and configured) a system? Does he or she want to hear about how programs are loaded (executed) by a shell?
Anyway those are all interesting and vastly different topics. None of them have simple answers since they depend a lot on what sort of system, who is doing the "loading," and and what sort of "program" we are talking about.
