    Socket programming (IRC)

    I have wrote a simple program for connecting irc servers. It's Ok but the parsing is the thing that i am confused about.
    During the main loop ( while (1) thing) when i try the parse the lines, the bot is exiting like Client exited.Actually when i try this the bot can't stay in server.
    ./bot
    Connection OK.
    Client exited.
    Here is the samples:
    Code:
    void send_nickname_joined(Socket sock, char *buf)
    {
    char *nick;
    nick = strtok(buf, "!");
    clearit(':', nick);
    send_server(sock, "%s has joinied", nick);
    return;
    }
    Code:
    int main ()
    {
    //variables
    //socket routines
    //irc connection routines
    //background routins
    /* Connection Ok. Parsing.. */
    while (1) 
    {
    readaline(sock, buf, sizeof(buf));
    //check pings for pong
    send_nickname_joined(sock, buf);
    }
    }
    When i am commented out "send_nickname_joined(buf);" line the bot stays in server as long as i keep it.
    Any ideas, samples, codes would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advanced.

    Well, send_nickname_joined, has 2 parameters and you are using it like it only has one... That should trip other warnings too.... are you compiling with -Wall?

    How are you declaring your buffers?

    Is send_server() really a variadic function (like printf) ?
    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.

    Yep, i am using it with macros anyway.
    Accidentally i found the problem. I have forgot using the socket pointer in the parsing function.Anyway, thanks to who helped and will help..
