thanks simon, my program is working fine.

i have another doubt about passing file descriptors. if i have a file
something like this in the parent program, how can i pass this descriptor to
the child process ??

FILE *fprt;
char f_path_name[]  = "mylib/myfile(my_member)";

fprt = fopen(f_path_name,"w");



how do i convert fptr to a string so that i can pass it to spawn(). i
believe fptr is a pointer to a structure.
