You range is amazing. Now, didn't you expect traditional question: what did you try?

at least you should respect when someone helping you without any expectation. what will you loss if you reply him nicely ?

i did ... but he again and again discuss with me about own myself ... when i tried very much on google and etc ... how can i solve it lonely ... and also sergey make me upset ... instead of help me to solve my problem ... only review my questions and my knowledge ... yes my knowledge isn't good like him or other one which manage here ... im only a simple student and trying to stand on my own ... then i really don't know why he do joking with me ( a girl) ?

it's not like that. when your parents punish they are not doing joking with you, they actually try to teach you something. SA want you to learn yourself. everyone phase the same student life. but if you will not try something yourself, you always need someone's help.

But one golden rule to learn is "never get upset when you fail in your work"

best luck.

Its for only 3 processes :-
#include <unistd.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>

#define MSGSIZE    14 
char *message = "hello, world!"; 
main() { 
char inbuf[MSGSIZE];
int p[3];

pid_t pid;
pid_t pid1;
if (pipe(p) == -1){ 
perror("pipe call"); 

pid = fork();
pid1 = fork();

if(pid == -1){

perror("Fork failed");


if(pid | pid1 == 0)//process A
    write(p[1], message, MSGSIZE);
    read(p[1], message, MSGSIZE);
    write(p[2], message, MSGSIZE);

/*else if(pid1 == 0){

    //read(p[1], message, MSGSIZE);
    write(p[2], message, MSGSIZE);

    //parent process C
    read(p[0], inbuf, MSGSIZE);
    printf("Pipelined message return:%s\n", inbuf);
