Do you know how to make your own wc utility or any tutorials which will help you make one. We have to make our own wc utility for school which:
-uses command line options
-reading text from file
-counting the number of characters, words and lines in the file,
-using fork() to create child processes
I just want to say I dont want anyone to do it for me just assist me on where i can get help.
The most useful example is probably the solution provided in "The C Programming Language" by K&R. There is also a ready solution here (done in C, with literate programming).
It is beyond me why you would use fork() to create child processes. What for?
