SUMMARY: what's wrong with my include file?

        Thanks all to those who responded to my exceedingly
elementary post. The reason I was having problems compiling

#include <sys/socket.h>
is that i needed #include <sys/types.h> above it

        It did indeed clear up my problems after which i
promptly ran into another problem where i was sending
too many arguments to a function (and when i looked
into the file i couldn't find a single instance of that function..
setpgrp... hmm, so my thrill and optimism only lasted about
30 minutes (i had to write a program to insert types.h everyhere
i could in the distribution package. alas..
        erm, so if anyone has successfully compiled the
COW server with netrek (blush) please drop me a line to
clue me in on how it's done. :) I'll just have to live with
a client i guess

it was such a small problem that allowed me to advance such a short
distance i feel like someone who who's trying to climb up
a wall and say's hey, can someone down there give me a push,
and about ten strong hands all push and i bump head into the
ceiling :)

thanks go out to:
