i have a c/s program in unix.but i don't check the close of client's.
  at first ,i check the return of recv,if it equal 0,then the client is close.and i do in my way.
  but if the client host is shutdown.the return of recv is -1.so i couldn't check the status of client's quit.
  how do i do ?

I recv return -1 that mean some error. If You don't want to check error (some socket get last error function) You can said that it mean Your socket is closed and no more available. That mean that problem is ion your side of communication.

I use MSVC 6.0. You could check is this error for SOCKET_INVALIDHANDLE that mean that your socket is closed.

this is from my Stream class, it checks for close and error. it is for windoze but you will get the idea

int Stream::recvData(char *buffer,int len,int option)
{
     int so_far = 0;
     int res = 0;
     so_far = recv(sock,buffer,len,0);
     if(so_far == SOCKET_ERROR || so_far == 0)
     {
          last_error = WSAGetLastError();
          return FAILURE;    
     }
     /* should we wait for 'len' to arrive */
     if(option == RECV_UPTO_LEN)
     {
          while(so_far < len)
          {
               res = recv(sock,buffer + so_far,len - so_far,0);
               if(res == SOCKET_ERROR || so_far == 0)
               {
                    last_error = WSAGetLastError();
                    return FAILURE;
               }
               so_far += res;
          }
     }
     return so_far;
}
