Hi guys,

Im starting out with my first question:
How do Operating Systems handle Highlevel-Interrupts.
I think that's it what people call a "software interrupt" - but that's all I know.
I want to get some in-depth knowledge about this.

I'll be grateful for any good explanation and links discussing this issue.

If there are to made basic separation between Unix-like systems and Windows systems, please specify them (separately).


greetings,
your deadlock!

You should study the C windows(linux) OS functions, they will help you a bit ...
