    socket system calls

    Hi everyone,
    I am new to system calls and socket. My question is when I try to trace the socket inside the kernel I see sys_socket. How socket function inside a c programme is being resolved into sys_socket. I've tried to google it but I couldn't find any information about it.
    I am using ubuntu 10.04 and downloaded kernel 2.6.32 source code from

    It is a system call made from the code of socket(). You need to get the source for the sockets library to see how that works.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
