    rpcgen problem

    Hi

    I have the following .x file
    Code:
    #define VERSION_NUMBER  1
    
    struct mytimeval {
         long    tv_sec;         /* seconds */
         long    tv_usec;        /* microseconds */
    };
    
    
    struct struct_t {
            struct mytimeval tv;
            char *str;
    };
    
    /**************************************
    * Since only one argument is allowed
    * I pack the data in a struct
    **************************************/
    struct dataPack_t {
            struct struct_t data;
            int fd;
    };
    
    program MYRPC {
            version MYRPC_VERSION {
                    int OPENREMOTE(string) = 1;
                    int STOREREMOTE(dataPack_t) = 2;
                    int CLOSEREMOTE(int) = 3;
            } = VERSION_NUMBER;
    } = 555555555;
    Also I implement the remote functions in ex_proc.c like below
    Code:
    int *
    openremote_1 (char **file_name)
    {
       .....
    }
    
    int *
    storeremote_1 (struct dataPack_t *dp)
    {
       .....
    }
    
    int *
    closeremote_1 (int *my_file)
    {
      .....
    }
    When I compile the code i have following errors
    Code:
    fnoyan@linux:~/c/rpc/17.1> rpcgen ex.x
    fnoyan@linux:~/c/rpc/17.1> gcc ex_client.c ex_clnt.c ex_xdr.c -o client
    fnoyan@linux:~/c/rpc/17.1> gcc -Wall ex_svc.c ex_proc.c ex_xdr.c -o server
    ex_proc.c:16: error: conflicting types for ‘openremote_1’
    ex.h:40: error: previous declaration of ‘openremote_1’ was here
    ex_proc.c:34: error: conflicting types for ‘storeremote_1’
    ex.h:43: error: previous declaration of ‘storeremote_1’ was here
    ex_proc.c:54: error: conflicting types for ‘closeremote_1’
    ex.h:46: error: previous declaration of ‘closeremote_1’ was here
    I have Sun's RPCGEN programming guide. Maybe it is from "stone age", I don't know!? I follow the steps in the document. The "client" part is compiled successfully.

    what may be the reason of errors?

    Thanks...

    After working on the code until 10 am, I managed to write the code. Here is the code itself, who can interested in it can copy and run it (hope helps anybody interested in the subject). To compile the program just run "make" from command line. I got help from the codes from my theacher

    You must have rpcbind running on your machine.

    I know it is ugly yo paste all the code, but I have nowhere to upload!
    Code:
    /* exercise.x */
    #define VERSION_NUMBER	1
    
    const MAXLEN = 32;
    
    typedef string strtype<MAXLEN>;
    
    /* I had some errors with original timeval! */
    struct mytimeval {
         long    tv_sec;         /* seconds */
         long    tv_usec;        /* microseconds */
    };
    
    struct struct_t {
    	struct mytimeval tv;
    	strtype str;
    };
    
    /**************************************
    * Since only one argument is allowed
    * I pack the data in a struct
    **************************************/
    struct dataPack_t {
    	struct struct_t data;
    	int fd;
    };
    
    program MYRPC_PROG {
    	version MYRPC_VERSION {
    		int OPENREMOTE(string) = 1;
    		int STOREREMOTE(dataPack_t) = 2;
    		int CLOSEREMOTE(int) = 3; 
     	} = VERSION_NUMBER;
    } = 777777777;
