I am new to linux programming and i am not sure if ia m putting my question properly.
I have to port an application program from Windows to linux. Can somebody tell me how to implement critical sections and event objects in linux. So far, i have understood that Critical Sections (used by threads of single process) can be implemented by using mutex and Event objects by using semaphores. Please let me know if i am correct/wrong.
My program uses Event objects both within the same process and across the processes. How should i go about doing this? Please help me linuxgurus outhere.
