Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I communication with different subsystems using serial port. In some subsystems after running for a while, I start getting invalid data inspite of system sending correct data. For dealing with this situation I used to
reset serial ports by closing and reopening serial port, it was doing the
trick but somehow when I have implemented this in my new application, this
also doesn't work. I am struck.
tcflush(Fd, TCIFLUSH);//flush all data received but not read
OpenPort(mStrPortNo);//open the port specified by port number and in read mode
qDebug("\n Reset Subsystem =%s,Port number =%s,Fd=%d ",qPrintable(msSubsystemName),mStrPortNo,Fd);
//code for setting port setting of serial port for individual sub systems
The ClosePort function invokes close system call.
Can anybody suggest me some other way to reset serial port in Linux.
I am using RHEL 4, C++ and Qt 4.2.1 for my application development. Also
I have used multithreading to implement each subsystem in a separate thread. Its strange that if A,B,C are three threads, A & B run fine together but when C is introduced B starts receiving invalid data after
sometime and never recovers even after resetting the port as mentioned above.
