Programming :: How To Include Variables In System() Calls

Mar 12, 2010

I need to include variables in a system() call. This is that I have:

[code]#include <iostream>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
using namespace std;


P.S.: I know this is a pointless redundant program, but it's part of a larger project learning process.

Programming :: Calling System Calls In C Runtime (in The Run-time)?

Sep 23, 2010

I know there is a way to call winapi in runtime in windows. I want to ask how can I call a system call in gcc in runtime (when I don't know what it can be)? I don't mean syscall that I think is for calling only system calls and not library functions.

Programming :: Alphabetic Non-repetitive List Of All System Service Calls

Mar 13, 2011

I'm trying to produce a alphabetic, non-repetitive list of all System service calls in all c files located in a folder. Here's what I got so far.
grep -ow '[A-Za-z]*SYS[$][A-Za-z]*' *.c | sort
Which produces all system service calls in alphabetic order I just need to find out how to make it non-repetitive.

Software :: Script Calls Another Script Which Calls 'bash' Inside

Mar 15, 2010

I need to write a script. In which, the 2nd part commands need to run under another bash shell environment.The will setup a new shell environment, call "bash". The rest commands need to run under the new env. (I cannot change this script too. )If I run these command one by one manually, it works of course. If I put them into a script, won't return because it calls "bash" command inside.

Ubuntu :: System To Drop Telemarketer Calls?

Aug 6, 2010

I've been receiving a ton of calls from telemarketers and political callcenters. What would be the simplest way to use Ubuntu to automatically drop calls incoming from blacklisted numbers?

I have Comcast Digital Voice service, which is technically VOIP but I think it interfaces with modems themselves just like any other phone service would.
I have a dedicated Ubuntu server sitting next to a phone jack already, so I'd like to use that if possible.

I've seen FreePBX and Asterisk, and hear that they can do the job. However, I haven't been able to tell just how easily they could be set up. It sounds like they might require me to get rid of all my phones and use soft phones instead... Does anybody know if it is as simple as buying a voice modem and configuring a PBX software to interface with it?

Ubuntu :: Return Values From System Calls?

Apr 30, 2011

I've implemented a few custom system calls in my Ubuntu kernel, but I'm having some issues with the return values. Each function returns a variety of non-negative integers depending on which error is encountered. However, when I'm testing the system calls, the only negative value that gets returned to the user program is -1, regardless of what I have in the code.

Is there some special path I have to take to get the proper return values?

General :: Tracing An User's System Calls?

Mar 27, 2010

I would like to trace a user's activity by monitoring system calls. Is there a way to use strace such that at startup it will begin tracing all system calls? Or is there any other method to automatically trace the system calls used during a user's session automatically without having to call strace manually?

General :: Error Checking On System Calls

Sep 19, 2010

I'm new to C language and some help finding places in the following code where a system call is made and error checking is not done. I found one but since I don't know C language at all I'm not exactly sure what else to look for. Link to my file: [URL]...

I found one and added error checking:
if (setoutpipe){
//Changes: Added error checking to the system call close()
//Orginal Code: close(pidefd[1]);
if(close(pipefd[1] != 0){
fprintf(stderr, "Could not close piple.

Programming :: Best Way To Trace Library Calls In C On SUSE Using Glibc 2.9

Sep 27, 2010

We recently ported an application over from IRIX to Linux, specifically SUSE Enterprise 11 and gcc (glibc 2.9). On IRIX there was a library trace utility call 'par' that allowed me to execute a C program and trace all the library calls it made, tracking how much time was spent in each call. I have been trying to find something similar for SUSE. I have found the ?trace programs (strace, ltrace, and ktrace) none of which is default installed on SUSE 11.Does any one have a suggestion on which ?trace to install and use or is there something else out there better?

Programming :: Hooking Calls To New/malloc Delete/free?

Is there a way to hook calls to new/malloc, delete/free in C++? I tried the following methods: LD_PRELOAD -> fails for malloc, because dlsym seems to depend on malloc -Wl,--wrap,malloc -> doesn't work for 'new' gcc hooks -> doesn't work always, e.g. for uclibc there are no hooks Are there any other methods I could try?

Programming :: Subsequent Calls To Realloc Cause Memory Dump?

Feb 17, 2010

I'm trying to write a C program that extends an array to any user inputed size.

if (arraysize == 0) {
arraysize = (int) pos + 1;
a = (int *) calloc (arraysize,sizeof(int));
for (i = 0 ; i < arraysize ; i++ )
a[i] = -1;

The program dumps with that sequence of inputs everytime, but might dump an input before or after if different positions are requested. Interestingly, when I tested pos = 2000..2008, I got no dumps. So is realloc somehow trying to extend the array into bad space?

Programming :: Get A Core Dump In One Of The C Library Calls (like Strcpy Or Printf)

Sep 20, 2010

I am trying to port some "C" code from Solaris to Linux. I have a Dell PowerEdge R610 with an Intel Xeon E5504 quad core processor running Red Hat Linux Enterprise 5.3. I am compiling in 64 bit mode. I have managed to get the code compiled and linked, but when I attempt to execute it, I get a core dump in one of the C library calls (like strcpy or printf.)

I have a static library that contains our own code that makes the call to the C library. If I move the library method into the source file with the main method and rename it to be certain that I am executing my method instead of the method in our library, the call succeeds. Eventually another static library call is made that results in a core dump in the shared object. I compile my library code into a static library with gcc as:

General :: Log Or Live Data That Discloses The System Calls An Application Makes?

Apr 5, 2011

I want a log or live data that discloses the system calls an application makes. I have used strace but can't find a guide for it that is decent. I'm interested in knowing the calls made after user intervention like opening a menu and so on. If you run (strace application_name) it is static. What good is this? When does strace make this file? When is this log produced?

Ubuntu :: Ekiga Does Not Accept Incoming Calls?

May 14, 2010

After I installed Lucid on my Netbook, I have different problems with ekiga.

First of all, some information about my ekiga account:

In ekiga I created a SIP-Account with a usual landline phone-number, my voip-provider is 1&1 (in Germany). In ekiga the account is named "Standard%limit", because I cannot register my sip-account without the "%limit". If I leave the "%limit" out, I get the message "Could not register (Forbidden)", but here on ubuntuforums (or maybe on launchpad) I read about the "%limit" as a workaround. Maybe it has something to do with my problem, I don't know.

Now, this is my problem:

Ekiga does not accept incoming phone calls after a few minutes after launching ekiga. Well, let me describe it this way: Usually ekiga plays a ringtone and shows a message whenever there is an incoming call. However, ekiga only behaves as described and expected just after launching ekiga. A few minutes later, lets say five or ten minutes, ekiga does not accept incoming calls anymore. I tested it with my mobile phone - when I call myself on the landline with my mobile phone, I expect ekiga to play the ringtone and show a message that there is an incoming call. However, ekiga does not do anything and after a few seconds the call is terminated automatically. But it is not the same as if ekiga is not running because if ekiga is not running I get the message that the subscriber is not available.
