This is not a chat room, don't repost your question if it is not
answered immediately.

Also, please put the entire question in the body, don't leave half of it
only in the subject.

Read the group and it's FAQ (and for groups with a charter read the
charter) before posting, this would have shown you that this is not a
"sources wanted" group but a groups about programming in standard C.

When posting provide sufficient information that people stand some vague
chance of helping you. On my systems I can often find the C sources in a
tarball in /usr/portage/distfiles but that is unlikely to help you.

A slightly more helpful answer is that it depends entirely on your OS
*and* the C implementation you are using, since each combination can use
entirely different source code for the standard C library, and in some
cases that source code will not be made available. So I suggest you try
using Google and if that does not help asking in a group dedicated to
your specific system after checking their FAQ, charter and at least a
few days worth of posts.

Look up her/his e-mail address: so******@gmail.com

Tera has been posting in chinese/japanse or something mostly.

I doubt he/she will understand your typical frustrated c programmer bullshit
below ;) =D

Bye,

I believe the Skybuck Flying is not highly regarded around here, so you
can ignore him/her without loosing anything worth noting.

Being poor at English is not a problem as long as it is understandable
and I at least can understand your posts.

The C library contains a lot of system specific code, so you will have
to write significant parts of it yourself. Mr Plauger's book is highly
regarded and would be a good reference for this.

We will be happy to help you with your C programming issues, but you
will have to ask on a group dedicated to your hardware or possibly
comp.arch.embedded when you need to use non-standard tricks such as
addressing the hardware directly.

Well, sort of. Yes, you've found the proper 'Reply' button, but you
should also delete anything from the previous article that's not
relevant to your reply. In particular, don't quote signatures unless
you're actually commenting on them. And how did my e-mail address get
mangled in the attribution line?

There are nine bytes there corresponding (in UTF-8) to two Chinese or
Japanese characters followed by a double-width colon.

Yes,I'am Chinese. On my screen,there are English and Chinese
words.Sometimes,"wrote:" can be "写道:" in Chinese.

They are simplified Chinese characters:

道 (dao): Dao, road, path; *to say*

I see you've been posting a lot today. Unless I've missed something,
you have said *nothing* topical. A little joking around is ok, but
could you *try* to talk about C? Maybe you could start by shooting
for a 50% topicality ratio.

Did too! I said you couldn't embed an object file in C source!
Hey! you're the one posting off-topic here - asking about Chinese
characters. Here's a site that would have helped you find that info:

Again, couldn't you *TRY* to say that in a Haiku or something Zen-like?

"The vast sea lets fish leap freely; the endless sky lets birds fly
freely; the wind has no moment."

I know you are clueless, so I will 'splain some of the allegory:
Sea = C, endless sky = internet / newsgroups, wind = well, you figure it

Honestly, I don't know how you can answer the same crappy questions and
homework questions and pointer questions, day after day after day... ad
infinitum. Yet you have been doing a great job in doing so for years.

My hat is off to you, Keith, for your patience, understanding, and
willingness to work with early beginners. You are level-headed, and step
in to give the correct facts. You are cordial and thorough,
knowledgeable and nice. I admire you, and I truly believe you are akin
to Howard Cosell as an irreplaceable resource in comp.lang.c. Well done,
my friend, well done.

I pop in for a few weeks, take a look around, sniper a few idiots, and I
have to leave; it's just the same old crap. There must be decades of the
same boring, trivial, homework type programs that no one would really do
in the Real World. And any of them could just Google the same question
they are about to post and get 500 responses - many that actually DO the
homework!

I also have a problem with training up the very people who are taking
our jobs away. When I see these overseas posts that want to drain our
brains so they can better steal our jobs, I wonder at the people
answering the questions. This is a serious problem. In another thread
there was talk about stealing because someone put a book online. How
about the fact that you are helping the person who took my job
online...?! I know the answer to the question, and you know the answer,
but the person making $1.50 in India or China doesn't know the answer -
so let's use our 20 years experience to help them steal our jobs. I say,
"OSHI!" (When Mussolini asked Greece to join the Nazis, the Greek
ruler's one word answer was, "No!" They have a National Holiday about
it)

I would like to see some interesting C questions or debates (remember
the NULL vs 0 vs location 0 vs embedded devices not having a location 0,
etc. discussion we had; that was meaningful, interesting, and topical) I
just don't see anything like that when I check in (and I check in more
than I post, BTW) and after a while I just want to stir things up in
here to try to get something or someone interesting to comment.

I guess that when I see the forum doing the kids' homework for them, and
stupid questions about converting integers to floats or something, I
just want to post something irreverent to break up the monotony. Then I
get grief from people like you and it sucks the fun out of it... Please
lighten up. You can't prevent my humorous jocularity, and at most you
can only scold after the fact. Or you could just ignore it. I would
never want you to killfile me, and if it ever enters your mind
(...again?) please let me know first, as I DO appreciate your comments,
mostly...

Keith, you could take a page out of the book of ... duh duh duh dum ...
(seriously concerned about invoking the name... <shiver>) ... Dan Pop.
HE jumps upon the unrighteous with swift and sure Justice, however not
over trivial things; you must incur the wrath of the Pop. You are much
more free with your critisms over a cute "bon mot" or turn of phrase.
Perhaps you should get laid more often...

What do you mean "our jobs"?

Do you think that all jobs belong to the small minority of the
world's population that lives in the US?

Do you think that the only people who post answers here are
USAnians?
When I see these overseas posts that want to drain our
brains so they can better steal our jobs,
Unlike the US which has achieved its present status by stealing
skilled people from other nations? And now you begrudge other
nations the opportunity to catch up?
I wonder at the people answering the questions. This is a serious
problem.
Indeed it is. Believeing that you have a right to all the jobs at
the expense of the rest of the world is a very serious problem.
In another thread there was talk about stealing because someone put

who took my job online...?!


You are obviously not in favour of a free market. What are you, a
commie?

Well, the overseas kids are Americans, mostly, and we're supposed to play
nice with our cousins across the pond; in any case, I don't think I'm
damaging the UK software economy all that much by showing the Yanks how to,
say, grab some input that won't crash the box.

Oh, did you think everyone answering questions here is American? And that
everyone asking is non-American? Let me assure you that's a long way from
the truth.
