hey,
I am a beginner to network programming so my apologies if my question seems very trivial and dumb to you...
my first task is to run a simple udp client server application,usually the sample programs that I see run with the help of command line arguments,but being on the basic level I do not want to do that,so I need to bind the client with some IP address(srever's IP address and port number)...
how can I do that in code...so that I need not run it from command prompt...
I would be really thatnkful if I got the answer for both server and client.
again my apologies for a primitive question like this:(

Well, if you don't want to deal with command line arguments (but why?) in your application then hard-wire such parameters in code. For instance, using this code sample[^], change (in the client code) from
h = gethostbyname(argv[1]);
to
h = gethostbyname("127.0.0.1");
