    Problem in socket programming to read ms word documents

    Hi all,
    I'm writing a small socket program in C for client/server application which reads .doc at client and writes as .doc in server side. But not able read .doc file directly. How do i convert the .doc into a binary format so that i can transmit over a socket to the server?

    thanks and regards,
    Sri

    You don't have to. This was transmitted from here to a server and from a server to you, but it is not in a binary format.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    Yeah, but I closed that one for idiocy - oh well.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
