    Count established connections

    I am running an IRC server currently running on port 6667, using the current hybrid and a UDP server that receives requests from a client and is supposed to pass back to the user the number of connections.
    Is there a way I can count the number connected to the irc server so I can pass it back to the users?
    I was able to do a perl script doing a netstat and passing that back to the client, but I would rather do this in C so that I might be able to add this UDP server in the IRC server code afterwards.
    My current UDP server code is as follows:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <errno.h>
    #include <sys/socket.h>
    #include <resolv.h>
    #define DEFAULT_PORT	1235
    int main(int count, char *strings[])
    {	int sd;
    	int i;
    	int fport;
    	int uport;
    	int lport;
    	int sbytes = 20;
    	int port=DEFAULT_PORT;
    	struct sockaddr_in addr;
    	char buffer[1024];
    	char sbuffer[1024];
    	//char sport[6];
    	char o1[5], o2[5], o3[5], o4[5];  //set string rep of each octet
    	int io1, io2, io3, io4;		//set int value for each octet
    	if ( count != 2 )
    		printf("usage: %s <port>\n...Using default port (%d).\n", strings[0], port);
    		port = atoi(strings[1]);
    	sd = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
    	bzero(&addr, sizeof(addr));
    	addr.sin_family = AF_INET;
    	addr.sin_port = htons(port);
    	addr.sin_addr.s_addr = INADDR_ANY;
    	if ( bind(sd, (struct sockaddr*)&addr, sizeof(addr)) != 0 )
    	while (1)
    	{	int bytes, addr_len=sizeof(addr);
    		for (i = 0; i < 12; i++)
    			sbuffer[i] = 0;
    		bytes = recvfrom(sd, buffer, sizeof(buffer), 0, (struct sockaddr*)&addr, &addr_len);
    		printf("msg from %s:%d (%d bytes)\n", inet_ntoa(addr.sin_addr),
    						ntohs(addr.sin_port), bytes);
    		sscanf(inet_ntoa(addr.sin_addr), "%4[^.].%4[^.].%4[^.].%4[^.]", o1, o2, o3, o4);
    		//set from port to port received from
    		fport = ntohs(addr.sin_port);
    		//set upper byte of port	
    		uport = fport / 256;
    		//printf("upper uport = %d\n",uport);
    		//set lower byte of port
    		lport = fport - (uport * 256);
    		//printf("lower lport = %d\n",lport);
    		//printf("sport = %s and fport = %d\n",sport, fport);
    		//int of each octet
    		io1 = atoi(o1);
    		io2 = atoi(o2);
    		io3 = atoi(o3);
    		io4 = atoi(o4);
    		//printf("From IP:%s %s %s %s: %d\n", o1, o2, o3, o4, fport);
    		//this is what we received in hex
    /*		printf("Received:\n");

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
