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. In each of these cases, you must decide whether to link the library statically or dynamically.
Int fd = temp_file; /* Rewind to the beginning of the file. */ lseek (fd, 0, SEEK_SET); /* Read the size of the data in the temporary file. */ read (fd, length, sizeof (*length)); /* Allocate a buffer and read the data. */ buffer = (char*) malloc (*length); read (fd, buffer, *length); /* Close the file descriptor, which will cause the temporary file to go away. The temporary file is already unlinked, as in the previous example, so it is deleted automatically when the file pointer is closed (with fclose) or when the program terminates.
