A deadlock is a situation in which two or more processes are waiting for each other to finish, and thus neither process can continue.
A deadlock occurs when one process is waiting for another process to release a resource that the first process currently holds. For example, Process A is waiting for Process B to release a file that it currently has open. Process B is waiting for Process A to release the CPU (Central Processing Unit) that it currently has allocated. Neither process can continue because the other one won’t let go of the resource they need.
