Question HELP (http server?)

Could anyone provide me with the source code for a simple multithreaded server in C that uses UNIX system calls, implementing only the GET command. Or point me to a location where I can view such source code?

any help will save my bacon!

Regards Gee Smilie

What kind of server? What are you trying to accomplish? You mention 'GET' are you asking about a web (HTTP) server?

Thanks for having a look at my post, sorry i forgot to mention that it is a very simple multithreaded http server I am trying to find the source code for.

All I want it to do is listen at port 8080.

When I point my browser to http://localhost:8080/ it will display my home directory.

I am very new to Unix and network programming and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards Gee.

Why you wouldn't use Apache I don't know but...

If you want to "play" with an httpd server, try... can download the source. It's small, fairly complete
but totally unsupported.

Threads in unix are very simple and are created by the the system call pthread_create. The complete format of the system call is pthread_create(pthread_t *pid, const pthread_attr_t *attr, void *(*func) (void*), void *arg). The pid is the thread ID, the attr is the attributes, usually set to zero (NULL), the func is a pointer to the function that will execute first, and the arg is a pointer to the arguments of that function. Your programme must use first the socket() system call, to establish a socket, then call bind() to bind that socket to a sockaddr_in, then call listen() to make this socket a lstening socket and then call accept(). After accept you will call the pthread_create to handle the connection. It is a good idea to use the manual pages to get more information for the previously mentioned system calls (e.g type man pthread_create).
