Conventions 13 Chapter 1: Application Design Overview The development of professional quality applications is best achieved through a reasonably balanced and planned approach, understanding your aims, and understanding your tools. Nobody likes getting things wrong unexpectedly and being forced to start over. Taking care with planning your application before you start coding can save a great deal of grief. Linux is a great platform to develop applications on. It's open architecture and the availability of its source code has made writing applications for Linux truly attractive.

A new membership number will be created and added to the member details in the database. Note that the passed dvd_store_member structure is not updated. To retrieve the new membership number a call to dvd_member_get is required. int dvd_member_get(const int member_id, dvd_store_member *member); Updates the member structure with details of the record that matches the given member ID. To recap, the sequence needed to add a member is: • collect details into a dvd_store_member • call dvd_member_create • call dvd_member_get • add membership number to member's card and issue it dvd_member_get_id_from_number retrieves an internal member ID from a membership number on the member's card: int dvd_member_get_id_from_number(const char *member_no, int *member_id); This extracts the membership number from a character array pointed to by member_no (five characters plus a Member Functions 29 Professional LINUX Programming trailing NULL) and writes the corresponding member ID into the integer pointed to by member_id.

Eventually we will add a Web−based interface to allow customers to pre−book their rentals. We will start with a couple of implementation choices already made. We have elected to develop the application in C. Despite the advent and rise in popularity of newer and more exotic languages such as C++, Java and Perl, C remains more than capable of supporting most of the programming tasks we are likely to undertake, especially in a Linux environment.
