This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

modified tic-tac-toe game using semaphore where
a. one player is elected as a leader
b. when a leader checks others should wait
c. others can check simultaneously on free cells
d. the turn is between the leader and others
e. the winner is the checks of a player on same row/column/diagonal
note: when 2 players try to check on a same cell the player whose id is less is given chance.
i have written this code.smtimes it runs fine bt mostly it gets hang whn asked fr input of coordinates frm user.
i think there is problem when it reach to semaphore l_move in leader_move function.
so anyone can see where is the problem..??
Sorry for taking such a long time to get back to you - real life caught up with me.
Why are you even using threads for this? Surely you want it to alternate between "Leader", "1" and "2" in order? In any case, you are using the variable th1 3 times - once for each thread - which may be the cause of the problem.
how can i do without threads?there is 1 thread for 1 player...
i dont want in order.first leader then among the other players whose id is less is given the chance..i hv to do like that but i m not getting how to do that so simply done without considering ids n all..
n what is the problem using th1 3 times?can u pls tell in detail?
