    Handle query strings using socket programming

    Hi, I need to make a daemon which listens to port 81 for messages like http://localhost/message?command=move&dir=left
    So far I made a daemon which serves as a simple stream server: I set up a socket to listen to a non-reserved port (like 9999), but I don't know how to read the query strings.

    Linux distro: Kubuntu 9.04
    Language: C
