Programming :: Clarification In The Select System Call?

Dec 8, 2010

I have a process that forks, where the childs puts some data of random size and exits while the parent should get the data and does some manipulation.. here I have used a pipe for child to write the data and parent to read the data.. Child simply dumps the data, and the data is of any size even child and parent doesnt know.
I have used select in the parent to see whether there is any data coming on the reading end of the pipe.. if there is a data.. I copy into a buffer.. Im reading the data continusly when the child exits after closing the writing end of pipe. Parent gets blocked on the read part But my question is how parent know the other of pipe is closed when using the select call. In otherwords.. while using select in readfds, how would i know the other end has closed the pipe..

Programming :: Sleep Call Causes Whole GNU System To Hang Indefinitely

May 6, 2011

Anyone know the reason why a sleep( ) on a Redhat Linux OS would cause the system to indefinitely hang? It's doing this every 10 or so calls in my program and I have to press the reboot button on my computer. My program is reading from a UDP port that has messages sent to it 20 times per second. When I sleep I assume the internal UDP buffer is getting more and more filled.

Programming :: Make System Call From An Automatically Started Daemon?

Apr 2, 2011

i've written small tool in C which makes measurements on my router (OpenWrt White Russian).

It is working as a deamon. If the tool is started manually, everything works fine. If it is started per script on startup, the following system call doesn't work :

Code: sprintf(command,"/bin/cat /root/%s%s | /usr/bin/ssh -p2222 user(at)host -i /root/.ssh/id_rsa "/bin/cat >> result/%s%s"", apmac, source, apmac, dest);

rc = system (command); the returned rc in this case is 256.

first i thought it is a problems with the user rights for the tool, so i have added +s to it. but that didn't help. as i said, when the daemon is started by hand, the system call works fine.

Programming :: Unpredictable Behaviour With Send/recv System Call?

Jul 30, 2011

I am making a library, but I am facing a strange problem while sending data over network using ethernet.

I am sending 39 bytes of the data from one server to slave application but some time slave receives 39 bytes and some time it receives 29 bytes. And when ever slave receives 29 bytes all the memories to which my pointers are pointing get changed. This problem is only when I am sending data from the server to slave, while sending data from slave to server I am facing no such issue.

Nov 29, 2010

In practice I have a script that call a java program that call a linux system command. The script if I run it, from a shell functions well,so it is not a java problem. The problem come out when i put this script in a crontab schedulation. The result in this case is that java do not execute the system command. I think it depends on crontab

Programming :: Poll() System Call Not Returning When The Socket Is Closed Locally?

Sep 29, 2010

we have a multi threaded program on Linux where one thread is waiting on poll() system call with event set to POLLIN, & another thread has closed the same socket fd (which is passed to poll) , but the poll() did not return, is this the expected behavior? From man page of poll we found that the poll should return POLLNVAL if the socket fd is closed, is my understanding correct or is there any bug in the poll()?In Solaris we observed that the poll system call is returning with POLLNVAL if the socket is closed.

Programming :: Working With System Call - Read Output And Parse Values

Dec 10, 2010

I have the following code:
Code:
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
int main() {
system("ps -ef | grep myprocessname");
return 0; }

When I run this program it outputs the following list of running processes:
Code:
root 10279 10275 0 13:02 ? 00:00:00 myprocessname myvar1=value1 myvar2=value2
root 10341 10337 1 13:02 ? 00:00:00 myprocessname myvar1=value1 myvar2=value2

What I want to really do is instead of writing the output to screen I want to read the output and parse the various values value1, value2 etc. What is the best way to do this?

Programming :: Error 4 Which (according To /usr/include/asm-generic/errno-base.h) Means "interrupted System Call"

Aug 1, 2010

I'm using gmake (v3.81) to build some c executables. As the first step in the process I run the files through a preprocessor (for embedded SQL). The preprocessor completes successfully, but the gmake reports an error and discontinues buiding the remaining dependencies...

make *** [myfile.c] Error 4

which (according to /usr/include/asm-generic/errno-base.h) means "interrupted System Call". My preprocessor doesn't raise any signals, so I'm not sure what's causing this error.

General :: Child Process Can't Print Strings After Call Signal_handler?

Nov 2, 2010

I'm studying about signal in Linux Kernel and I got a problem about signal handler and output buffer.

I just want to know about stdout buffer related parent process and child process.

The problem is - parent process received SIGINT signal_handler that I implement is called. And after signal_handler is called, it print string "pid : xxx state : RUNNING" ... but after end of signal_handler function, child process might be print string but it isn't print at all.

I'm not asking right code, but I want to know why is this happened and concepts about signal handler, buffer - between parent process and child process.

here is a code signal_handler:

Quote:

void TC3_handler()
{
pid_t pid;
ProcState ps;
pid = GetProcessId();

[Code]....

chlid process counts number in infinite loop, but after call signal_handler, it can't print at all.. just waiting for SIGINT..

Ubuntu :: Error Creating Child Process R-commander - On LTS 10.4

May 8, 2010

I work with social sciences and I really need to use "R". R is a program used for statistics and it has a module called R-commander, which let things easier to deal and comes with several options as opening SPSS files (another statistical package commonly used by Windows users) and other things. THe problem is, as Rcmdr is a module for R, when I run it, it opens a terminal window and then he runs the module, which opens a friendly gui.

It worked okay and clean in Ubuntu 9.10, but for LTS 10.4 I keep getting an error, no matter I reinstall the modules or the entire program. I even installed Ubuntu again without upgrading it from karmic Koala. But there is the same error msg.

The error message says: "Error while creating a child process for this terminal". The strange part is there is no other msgs in the terminal or errorlogs. I really need to use this software for work.

I was wondering if there was a way to add a switch to a gcc/g++ call everytime. I have a few libraries that I need to compile for different processors. Each has a makefile which calls gcc to compile. Here is the best option I could come up with so far:Include a Makefile and define CC as gcc -mcpu=xxx.
