hi.i am preparing a project about linux sockets.iam writing a server.iwanna use pthread functions in server code.can anybody help me about usage of pthread funcs .any sample code.i know this functions but dunno how to use.i hope i could explain my problem.

these r the client and server codes.one or more clients will connect to server.there for i have to use pthread functions.i know nothing about them.
i wish u send me some information or samples about them.

!!!!!!!!INSTEAD OF FORK I WNAT TO USE PTHREAD FUNCTIONS!!!!!!!!!!
