    web server coding in c

    Hi All

    I am writing a webserver which accepts HTTP/1.0 requests and sends appropriate responses. I would like to improvise to accept HTTP/1.1 requests.
    How and what should be done, any examples are appreciated .

    Thanks

    Do you know what an RFC is?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Nevermind, devshed are on the case, nothing to see here.

    Oh Come On !

    I absolutely know i am a beginner....
    I know the differences between 1.0 and 1.1

    Maybe i should frame my q differently...

    I have tried this code to set up socket reuse ,
    when i change the condition set to 0 it gives an error otherwise works fine with -1
    i am trying to set the socket option here.
    and the way i am testing is i have a html with text and image .
    so when i request it to my server its showing up as two connections rather than one, i want the .html to receive both text and image in one persistent connection.


    Code:
    if(setsockopt(newsockfd, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, (char *)&opt, sizeof(opt)) <= -1)
    {
    perror("FAIL on setsockopt, error:");
    exit(-1);
    }

    The output on server side when requesting index.html ( getting two connections for a html file(index.html) if it has a image(winter.jpg)in it)

    Code:
    bash-2.05$
    Incoming connection from <IP Address>
    Comes from the child process so child working
    GET /index.html HTTP/1.1
    GET
    /index.html
