20. The /proc/ file system entries

The /proc filesystem contains a number of files specifically related to the AX.25 and NET/ROM kernel software. These files are normally used by the AX52 utilities, but they are plainly formatted so you may be interested in reading them. The format is fairly easily understood so I don't think much explanation will be necessary.
