This question is directed to davidwilliams! I have just viewed a solution to boosta's question about a daytime request service on a remote server. How can I execute this program! I am using Sun Operating system 5.5(Solaris 2.5). What are its typical arguments? How should I compile it and using what? Will gcc compile it?

Hi there!
  Do you have the Question number for that question?  Was it the daytime client program I provided for him?  If so, you certainly can use gcc - you should just need to add -lnsl -lsocket on the compile line
  e.g.   gcc -o daytime daytime.c -lnsl -lsocket

  Then, if you just run the program it tells you the parameters it expects.  I think it was just the hostname to connect to, because the program uses an API call to retrieve the port number for the daytime service.
  Let me know how you get on!

 Ok, I've just looked back through the questions and if the one you're referring to is
  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q.10109566
then yes, you can call the program presented by passing in the hostname you wish to connect to, and then optionally you can specify a port as well, if you wish.
  Hope it all goes well for you ...

 I certainly did get the points - many thanks !
  The way Experts-Exchange works is that a question that has been answered can be 'bought' for 10% of the original points awarded.  So, I did get your 40 points, and now the question and answer can be viewed by others at a cost of 4 points to them.
