hi
i am making an http server
it has following functions
main()
{
if option is "-?", output the hints and stop
check the directory supplied is sensible and not a security risk
become a daemon process
ignore child programs (to avoid zombies when child processes stop)

create a socket, bind it to a port number and start listening to the
socket

forever {
wait and accept incoming socket connection
start a new thread
web function
else close new connection
}
}

log()
{
outputs error, sorry or log messages to the nweb.log file
if a sorry message, transmit it to the browser as a fake HTML response
if error or sorry message the program is stopped
}

web() - this function returns the request back to the browser
{
read from the socket the HTTP request
check it's a simple GET command
check no parent directory requested to escape the web servers home
directory
if no file name given assume index.html
check the file extension is valid and supported
check the file is readable by opening it
transmit the HTTP header to the browser
transmit the file contents to the browser
sleep thread for 1 second

Hi,

You can use a sync queue for example, in your main thread (the one
accepting connections) each time a new connection is received the TcpClient
(or Socket) is stored in a Sync'd Queue, a new thread is spawn to execute
the serving methid, this method dequeue the first element from the queue and
it's the sockets it uses
cheers,

Both systems have the appropriate session variable set i.e. Session.LCID = 2057. Both servers have IIS...

Hi: I'm working on an e-commerce site. Using the SMTP class, my site sends out confirmation messages. It works most of the time, but sometimes raises an error. I need a way of making sure it goes out every time. I thought about wrapping a try-catch handler in loop that keeps on retrying if delivery fails. Is this a good idea? If not, what is the best way of handling this kind of thing? Thanks,

Hi. As most of you know, comp.databases.postgresql.general is a wonderful resource. What you may not know is that it has not gone through a process that would enable it to be listed on hundreds of usenet servers worldwide by default. Normally groups that are under the comp.* hierarchy go through a something called RFD and CFV. comp.databases.postgresql.general has not gone through this process, therefore many servers refuse to carry

Issue making textbox visible based on specific input from a radio button list in an EditItemTemplate I want to setup a gridview that when in edit mode and when the user selects "Other" from a radiolist that a text box will appear and the user can input text. I can get the textbox to appear after selecting other in the radiolist; however, the selected value in the radiolist disappears. I believe this is due to the databind call.
