    Rpcgen - where? how?

    http://www.cprogramming.com/tutorial...all_start.html

    That's a tutorial on RPC's - I'm interested, but don't really know where to start. It mentions "rpcgen" as a compiler, but I don't know how to find it, if it's part of dev-c++, a different utility, or what.

    Invoke the RPC compiler using "rpcgen llist.x"
    Am I just stupid? It doesn't list any #defines or such, so I'm sort of out there right now.

    Thanks.

    rpcgen is a stub generator.

    You describe your server services in the .x file. Then you call at your console (under Linux, donīt ask me in Windows): $rpcgen llist.x

    It will generate two .c files and two .h files, if I am not mistaken. There is one .c and one .h for the server and the same for the client. The server and the client must include this new generated .h file. They must be compiled and linked with their respective .c file. Hope that helps.

    Eek. I found out (after more, more, more searching) that you can just call "rpcgen" (as you said) in Linux which I guess is what (s)he's referring to...But I'm on Windows, so is there anyway to do something like that with a special compiler or something?

    Thanks either way, though, Mortissus.
