Linux may block a certain system call when a program attempts to perform an operation for which it does not have permission. For example, a program might attempt to write to a file marked read-only, to access the memory of another process, or to kill another user’s program. The arguments to a system call might be invalid, either because the user provided invalid input or because of a program bug. For instance, the program might pass an invalid memory address or an invalid file descriptor to a system call.
Typically, you’ll call getopt_long in a loop, to process all the options the user has specified, and you’ll handle the specific options in a switch statement. 1 n n n Interaction With the Execution Environment If getopt_long encounters an invalid option (an option that you didn’t specify as a valid short or long option), it prints an error message and returns the character ? (a question mark). Most programs will exit in response to this, possibly after displaying usage information. When handling an option that takes an argument, the global variable optarg points to the text of that argument.
Close the file and return the buffer. You might need to manually free other shared resources, however, such as temporary files and shared memory, which can potentially outlive a program. 3 Writing and Using Libraries Virtually all programs are linked against one or more libraries. Any program that uses a C function (such as printf or malloc) will be linked against the C runtime library. If your program has a graphical user interface (GUI), it will be linked against windowing libraries. If your program uses a database, the database provider will give you libraries that you can use to access the database conveniently.
