    Question Socket Programming using C on linux

    hi all,
    i'm developing one client server chat application,for that i've got two files naming client.c and server.c under a folder called smallChat. My question is how to check this project is working in gcc,caz when i compile server.c it produces a.out and when i compile client.c it overwrites a.out. so help in running my project on gcc(linux)

    thanks in advance,
    Sri

    change the output file. So try something like this:

    gcc server.c -o server.out

    and then

    gcc client.c -o client.out

    Now you'll have separate names that don't overwrite each other.

    Check the automake, autoconf, etc (search autobook) utilities to make compilation/build process easy for you.
