Parent article: File holes, races, and mmap()

pwrite(fd, buf, 1, 10000);
Note that even though the file size is set to 1000 bytes

Was the fourth argument to pwrite() intended to be 1000, not 10000? (After which the file size should be 1001 bytes, not 1000.)

No, the argument should really be 10000. But the sentence below the example is confusing (and has a typo). It should be something like:
Note that 4096 bytes of the file are mapped (even though the file size at the time of mmap was 1024 bytes) because files are mapped in page-sized chunks.
