    Hi ,
    I want to send a structure (user defined) for example :

    struct bank{

    int empid;
    char name[50];
    float amount;

    } per;

    I want to send this from a client to server on unix.Can any1 tell me
    how to send this(from client) and read the data at the other end(at
    server).tnx in advance...

    Ask in an appropriate newsgroup. <comp.unix.programmer> might help
    Unix, networking et cetera are off-topic here in <comp.lang.c> where
    only the C language is discussed.

  3. Assuming the client and server are both running on the same machine,
    there are a wide variety of options available to you, and without
    further information about your setup, it's hard to recommend one in
    particular. For example, you could use named pipes, shared memory or
    sockets. If the client and server are running on different machines,
    you'll need to rely on the last of those options...

    To find out more, "interprocess communication" or "IPC" would be a good
    term to Google. If you want more guidance here, you'll need to describe
    your application in more detail.

  4. If you want more guidance here, you'll be asking in the wrong place.
    comp.unix.programmer is full of Unix experts, most of whom know more
    about this stuff than most of the people here. "Antoninus Twink", for
    whatever reason, apparently doesn't want you to know that.

  5. isn't that a rather atypical Client Server application?
    Yes, I know it happens but wouldn't it be more reasonable
    to assume the Client and Server were on different machines.
    Maybe utterly different hardware.

    To the OP: try a Unix newsgroup and ask about sockets.

  6. I'd hardly call it atypical. How many daemons are running on your
    machine at the moment waiting for local connections? Are you running X
    Windows at the moment with local client programs?

    The OP didn't give us enough information to tell what his setup was: I
    gave advice (which you snipped) that deals with both situations.

    Plenty and they also accept and correctly process remote ones. Fool.
