Well I am sure I cannot use sockets it is stated. It is assumed that the game
is run on a unix/linux server and the users make use of their machines as
terminals so evryone controls his player in the game but can also see the
others beauce all players aim is to reach at some position in the map. who
reaches first wins the control is done by the arrows up/down/left/right. I
think using putty as terminal is the best so people would be able run the
game and if there is an open session of the game before they opened it it
will give them option to join or not so if they join they will be put in a
random free position and they will see the other players aiming at the goal
so they will be able to start playing imigitly. This is the way it should
work. About atomic functionality I was thinking about semaphores. Do you
think that is the way to go about it. I haven't got much time to finish my
design because it is high time start coding since I am not that good at C.
Thanks for all suggestions till now and for any future of these.10x agian
