    Function in a Server program

    Hi to All,

    I have written a little server that work fine.
    Now I need to add a function in the main that process a phrase, passed from a client as telnet. The last part of main is:

    listen(sock, 1);
    /* connection client */
    while (1) {
    client_len = sizeof(client);
    if ((fd = accept(sock, (struct sockaddr *)&client, &client_len)) < 0) {
    perror("accepting connection");
    fprintf(stderr, "The connection is Open.\n");
    send(fd, "Wellcome in my Server !\n\n", 38, 0);
    send(fd, "Please send Your Phrase, terminated by ..)!\n\n", 44, 0);
    fprintf(stderr, "The Connection is Closed.\n");
    fd is the socket descriptor and the function is like:
    void process_phrase(int in, int out);

    How must write the code that read the phrase until the client send the terminator signal ".."

    I hope in Your help. I am a newbie in C programming.

    Thank You and Best Regards.

    In a word: Beej

    Read, compare, do something appropriate.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
