    I'd suggest something more like:
    void echofile(FILE *fp)
    {
    int n1, n2;
    int count = 0;
    char inbuffer[80];

    while (fgets(inbuffer, sizeof(inbuffer), fp))
    {
    ++count;

    I'd suggest looking at the Telnet RFC (Request for Comments).

    Basically, as I understand it, a telnet connection (once established) is always waiting for input, whether it knows it or not, unless...

    There's a plug-in for Firefox that lets a user muck with the contents of cookies, or at least I think there is. Very few people bother to look inside cookies beyond finding out where they come from....

    What you're writing is called a "Cross Reference" program. What you want (assuming that you're allowed to use code that you don't write yourselves to parse the source text) is an ANSI C parser, of...

    An "ASCII code" is just a integer number between 0 and 255 that can be stored in a byte. If you view it as a character, you'll see a graphic (if there is one for that code), if you view it as an...

    It could be that the terminal window (or whatever program you're using) doesn't have a good map between the font that it's using and the character set encoding (which I assume is Unicode). The fact...

    By "senior", do you mean college? If so, I'd suggest something a bit more substantial than a Keno game. My senior project was a programming language and an interpreter for that language. The...

    I answered a part of this question in the Linux forum.

    You need to learn the difference between character sets and fonts. If the font you're using doesn't have a glyph for a given character, the...

    It seems that you've got the right character set support, but no font integrated to go with it. Fonts and character sets are very different things -- a font is mapped onto a character set (or is it...

    I'd suppose that it should work the same way in the new process as it does in the old process. The forked process gets its own copy of argv[].
