Can anyone show me the code of
server in C , windows
and client in PHP using socket

I need only the simple option for one connection
SERVER in C and client in PHP

I have managed to do socket from php to php
Here is the code that worked for me :
But I dont know how to replace the PHP server side to C

   echo "SERVER start --------- <br/>\n" ;
    $server_socket = stream_socket_server ("tcp://");    
    if ($server_socket ) {
        echo "server: OPENED <br/>" ;
    else {
        echo "server: FAILED to open OPENED <br/>" ;
    if ($server_socket ) {
	    while ($socket = stream_socket_accept($server_socket)) 	    {
            fwrite($socket, "Hi Hi Hi"  );

// client -------------------
    $socket = stream_socket_client ('tcp://'); 
        echo "<br>CLIENT:  error FAILED to open <br>";
	    echo "<br>$errstr<br>";
    else    {
	    while (!feof($socket)) 	{
            $server_msg = fread($socket, 100);
        printf ( "client: reached eof <br /> " );
