Sometime on Jun 26, Triptpal Singh Lamba assembled some asciibets to say:

No, that was `The idle mind'.  Ideal is completely different.

Read the rfc's.  I can't recommend any books because I haven't read any
except for Tanenbaum, but that's not for programming.  I believe that
the only way to learn is to do it, so just jump right in and start
programming, even if you don't know what you are doing.  You may want to
download some programs.

I would actually suggest that you read the perl ipc man page
(man perlipc).  Search for Sockets:, and copy/paste the sample code from
there.  Then, find out what each function in that code does.  Once
you've understood that, try to reimplement it in C.

No.  Redhat is not a good choice.  Debian is a good choice.

No, I'm Philip.  Phillip is someone else.

> useful(read less) thingy industrial revolution ;) i am frm rait

It was The Information Revolution, and ya, I wrote it.  Useless,
possibly, but the point wasn't the content, but the fact that it's an
engine for content delivery.  That's what I developed.


Death is Nature's way of recycling human beings.
