    > does someone has any experience in linux programming

    there are 1300+ threads in the linux section, most of them with answers, so there is probably one or two people around with linux experience.

    a new question would be better off in a new thread..

    Here's a tip - try

    Code:
    man ioctl
    at your command prompt. Press <SHIFT + Q> to quit and return to the prompt when you are done reading..
