This one is about /proc, a ⭑magical⭑ directory on Linux. Knowing about /proc feels like a superpower to me -- when I was writing rbspy I leaned on /proc/PID/maps a lot to figure out the memory layout of Ruby processes.

The replies to the original tweet have a ton of great discussion about how /proc works (/proc/PID/environ is actually just a pointer into the process's memory!) and other useful features of /proc not mentioned in the comic.

This is page 5 of my Bite Size Linux zine, which explains 19 of the Linux concepts that I've found the most useful to know.

Link to the tweet: an amazing directory: /proc
Get the zine: Bite Size Linux
