[SOLVED] need help to further *optimize* my small C program that produces absolute path
ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

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.

If you are serious about optimizing I would go back to my earlier suggestion: rewrite the program to handle multiple paths per run, perhaps using a fifo or socket.
I think I know now what you mean but I think it would be better if I put that on a different package since it appears to be more like a hack and I'm not sure if it will be stable as a generic implementation for shells.
But you have some example that runs slow (which is why you asked for optimization help), right? It would be interesting to see that.
About the scripts? Not really. I'm pretty happy with what they are right now and they appear to be already stable and consistent. After many revisions, I finally found their final form (probably the most optimized and most balanced form). And nothing has changed much since the first release (only descriptions and documents except for the generic loader where I didn't test its failure function).
But of course and nevertheless, I can never be sure of that and suggestions like yours (esp. from someone that helped me a lot already) will always be welcomed.
Just made the cleaner version of the test scripts and uploaded them. Same site at sourceforge in the extra folder. Good luck and enjoy .
