Advanced topic: Sockets

Lecture 25: A snippet of code for a server to set up a socket on a known port, and then return a connected socket when a client contacts the server. serverSocket.c.

Advanced topic: Processes

Lecture 24: Processes. printArg.c.

Lecture 25: Fork and Pipe.

  • Fork a child process to execute a command: myFirstFork.c.
  • Parent and child get distinct copies of original process memory: mySecondFork.c.
  • Do not share file descriptors: sharedIn.c, sharedOut.c.
  • A pipe from parent to child: parentToChild.c.
  • Piping stdout from the parent to stdin on a child process running a paging command: moreQueens.c.
