I am a a newuser of QNX and I am doing a assignment which involves some
system call in QNX,
The MsgReceive(…) system call return a value, from specification, it
0 : it is a rcvid.It encodes the sending thread’s ID and a local connection
=0: it is a pulse ,Unlike a message, your shouldn’t reply to a pulse.
What is the difference between a pulse and a message?Why the server side
should not reply a pulse?
Also, If I have some question on concurrent programming in qnx, which
newsgroup should I post to?
Thanks a lot for your help.
P.S. btw, I still don’t know how to install an editor in qnx…I can’t find
a window with an icon and double click it… I just find something like
“software installer” for qnx, but I don’t know how to use…that may be a
stupid question, ,but I do need help…hope all of you won’t mind.
I ask because I am a novice.
