    OS independent Network Protocol implementation in C (Example)

    Hey,

    I want to implement a network protocol using a C-based library that will be operating system independent, POSIX compliant and will use only the standard C library. That will enable users to integrate this library either in applications that operate on operating systems like Linux, or in microcontroller environments.

    I don't haven't worked much on implementation of protocols. I will really be thankful if anyone could provide me a link of an example code or documentation.

    Thanks

    This makes no sense.
    POSIX is a specification for the APIs an OS provides.

    If you say POSIX compliant, you have just specified an OS with a minimum set of features.

    Besides, standard C (stdio.h and the other dozen or so headers) know NOTHING about networking.
    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.
