Say I am doing a tar of a particular directory by
"tar -cf newtarfile /opt"
then newtarfile is the tar of the directory /opt.
Now instead of putting the "newtarfile" on my unix harddisk, I would like to send it to another machine simultaneously as it is taring. I do have sockets and use write to write to the other machine. My question is how do i use the output of this and use it as an input to my write function. I am using the unix "write"function.
I am invoking the tar from my code using the system command. Now i am trying to somehow redirect the output. Any ideas/help using the pipe is highly appreciated.
