Is "System Programing in Unix" the same as programing in C in Unix?
I have taken a course in C (at a university in another state) a while
back. I can pick up the langauge easily. I have never used Unix or
Linux operating system but plan to install Linux in the near future.
Currently, I am taking an online course in Linux (actually two 8 week
online course; each is 1 unit): the book used it "A Guide to Unix
using Linux" from course technology. I really want to become
comfrotable with Unix/Linux
I thought that while I have access to a Linux account, I should also
start studying programming with C in on the side on my own so that I
can claim th...compile C programs with UNIX system calls (= Unix Programs??)
If the C programs have UNIX system calls such as fork(), alarm(),
etc.., we should call it UNIX programs, not traditional C programs?
We couldn't compile the programs with system calls using VC++ compiler.
I need to compile it under UNIX platform. correct? any other
Please advise. Thanks!!

WHo calls them C programs? Personally, I'd call the UNIX programs.

What is the difference between solaris patch version(Example :142900-15) and solaris update version (Example: u8 0r u9 ). When do we apply solaris patch and when do we apply solaris update version. any help greatly appreciated :)

I am not sure whether I should ask questions in this group, but I
really don't know a better place.
I just begin to learn programming under unix and was trying to find
good websites about Unix/Linux Programming with C or C++, but to my
disapointment, I can hardly find some good resources.
Now I am reading Richard Stevens's Book "Advanced Programming in
the UNIX Environment". But I always have a problem that I don't
know how to use the functions and methods he taught in the book.
It sounds absurd, but it is really my situation. So I am wondering

I am will be working on an assignment which requires me to use Java to
do some programming in Unix(Solaris) environment. I was wondering if anyone
has done this before and know of any good references on the net for me to
start with. Stuff related to processes spawning, concurrency and distributed
system would be helpful. Thanks.

libkstat APIs VS. the system() call
A quick guide offers examples of the libkstat APIs to do performance
analysis and extract operating system metrics. Weisner recommends
using the libkstat API instead of the system() call.

I run a website called Rosetta Code, where the goal is to enable
comparison and learning of programming languages by seeing how a
programming task is implemented in multiple languages.
I started it back in January as a MediaWiki setup, hoping it would grow
into an encyclopedia of programming knowledge. It never became an
encyclopedia, but it *did* accumulate a hefty amount of code, with 94
tasks solved using 64 programming languages. (Mind you, not all tasks
are solved in all programming languages.)
I've been particularly pleased to see experimental and rare programming

I would like to ask if anyone could please help me with the following
I want to use a free program that seems to be compiled for an SGI IRIS
OS. The source files are available here...
Is there a free OS that I can install on Microsoft Virtual PC so that
I can use this program on a XP host machine? Alternatively, is there
any type of software emulator I can install that would allow me to use
this program on a windows XP machine ? Is it difficult or even
possible to compile the source to run on windows XP or a UNIX based OS

The program is an Example from Deitel and Deitel, chapter 6.
I typed it in carefully, I believe.
The program seems to freeze in the function median, where
median calls printArray(). printArray() prints only 80 elements
and then it seems to be in a loop of some type running
the cpu at 100%. well, freeze may not be the right terminology.
really it happens in the printArray(), because printArray()
does not finish printing.

Is there anybody out there having an URL to a resource where Programming
Fortran/MS SQL is explained ?
Or just send me some samples !
I suppose this is not quite what you want, but I have been working on a
Fortran interface to the SQLite database system
(http://www.sqlite.org). That particular site at least explains how to
use SQL and in combination with my library you can use the database
system from a regular Fortran program.

Does anybody have an exemple of programme using the librairy visa.h . It is only to help to know how to use simply the function of the librairy.
I have to communicate with a ANRITSU spectrum analyser via RJ45. For example, if I want to change the frequency, the document provided by ANRITSU tells me to send " [:SENSE]:FREQUENCY:START 1MHZ " . But i don't know if I write directly this command on C++, or if I have to save it into a buffer with " sprintf(buffer,"[:SENSE]:FREQUENCY:START 1MHZ ") and use the function of the visa32.lib ...Program or be Programmed
The debate over whether the Net is good or bad for us fills the airwaves
and the blogosphere. But for all the heat of claim and counter-claim,
the argument is essentially beside the point: it's here; it's
everywhere. The real question is, do we direct technology, or do we let
ourselves be directed by it and those who have mastered it? ?Choose the
former,? writes Rushkoff, ?and you gain access to the control panel of
civilization. Choose the latter, and it could be the last real choice
you get to make.? ...
