in linux source code/workspace.. there is often, i mean preprocessor statements, header files are included in between the code...

what does it mean?

I am surprised to see the " preprocessor statements, header files included " suddenly in middle of a C file.

is it correct or this is the way a C file looks in linux?

Maybe you need to find a C Programming forum to post a programming question.

Thanks. and meanwhile i have a doubt.

i have installed debian linux in my machine and also i have installed all packages related to TCP/IP. now will i be able to view the source code related to TCP/IP Stack?

Also, what is the programming language used in building LINUX, is it C? or shell programming language? or assembly level language?

If you can tell me how to view source codes in LINUX system....

The programming of kernel requires a lot of experience with 'C' and even machine code. You can look at Kernel Links to get some useful links.

If you installed your source for the kernel then you should find it at '/usr/src/linux' which is usually a link to your source in '/usr/src'.

You should be able to look at the source for the 'TCP/IP' if the source is installed. With the package being installed doesn't mean the source is installed. The source can be omitted or removed.
