Question (Doubt) Info libc <especification>


Hello everybody,

I am here with an problem on "info libc", and to be more accurate, i need to see especific information on libc, like:

- sockets;
- server example;
- byte stream example;
- (...)

And i dont know, with what kind of sintax can i put these command on the terminal =/.

My teacher write that i must execute like, for example, these:

$ info libc "Sockets"

I already try without "" but doesnt work too =[

Anyone knows how can i resolve these little problem!?

Regards.

Welcome to LQ.

The installed info file (libc.info.gz) can be very short in some Linux OS.
Please try : $ info libc
... May be it was different 10 years ago ?
This one from 2001 is like a catalog :
http://info2html.sourceforge.net/cgi....info.gz%29Top

Section 'Sockets' : http://info2html.sourceforge.net/cgi...o.gz%29Sockets

OK, Ubuntu : You will get the complete libc info package with :

sudo apt-get install glibc-doc


.. Then you can do : info libc "Sockets"
etc. etc.
