    Proc file systems is known as runtime/virtual filesystem, the files are created by modules and are varied accordingly.

    # cat /proc/interrupts

    check this again after 2 minus the same command gives you different values

    here arew some functions for proc filesystem

    struct proc_dir_entry *sample;
    create_proc_entry();
    remove_proc_entry()
