Decision Making and Looping

C supports Decision Making and Looping (Interations)
In decision Making,
if, if-else, if- else if – else, switch – case is used.
//These statements are executed only if the condition is true or 1
if – else
//These statements are executed only if the condition is true or 1
//these statement are executed only if the condition is false or 0
(in the above example, there is no else part means that for some situation, there may not be a need for else part)
if – else if – else
if(condition 1)
//These statements are executed if the condition 1 is true or 1
else if (condition 2)
//These statements are executed if the condition 2 is true or 1
//These statements are executed neither condition 1 nor condition 2 are true
// if all the conditions fails, then this statement will execute
Switch Case
switch (expression)
case 1: statement 1;
case 2: statement 2;
case 3: statement 3;
default: statement d;
//Statement n;
The switch case works similar like a multiple if else if statement.
Assume if the expression takes 3 as the value and the statement 3 will be executed and next there is a break statement, so the control comes to statement n and it ill be printed.
so when case 3: is success, then
statement 3;
statement n;
will be printed
  • while()
  • do .. while();
  • for()
while ()
//statement 1
statement 1 will keep on execution till the condition becomes false
so this loop is called as entry controlled loop
do while()
//Statement 1
in this, whether the condition is true or false, first time the loop will execute and only then it will check for validity of the condition.
so this loop is called as exit controlled loop
for loop
for (initialization: condition; increment/decrement)
More details about the looping will be in subsequent posts.

Routing in VANETs using ns3

Part 1
WAVE - Wireless Access for Vehicular environments. It might take more than an hour. The readers are requested to be patient. SUMO, VANETs, routing comparison 1. Explain the full source code (1550 lines of code) 2. Creating a real scenario using osm (Open Street Map Web Wizard) 3. Performance analysis for various vanet protocols. Location of the source code /home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-3.27/ns-3.27/src/wave/examples
Move this file to the scratch/ for inclusion of all modules. Step 1: Explanation of source code. Copy the file to scratch folder. This is just Part 1 of the VANET comparison

Part 2 Please watch the First Part before watching this video
Part 2 - Analysis of the results.
Please go through the first video (Part 1) and then watch this video (PArt 2)

ns3 installation in Ubuntu 16.04

This post serves the installation instructions of ns3 in ubuntu 16.04 version. Some of my students are working in ns3, this post will benefit them in installing ns3.

OS Used: Ubuntu 16.04.4
ns3 version: ns3 version 3.27

The same procedure will be applied for OS like Debian, Linux Mint.

Fresh installation of Ubuntu 16.04 Let you try the fresh installation of ubuntu in your hard disk along with windows.
Installation of ns3 dependencies ns3 needs so many dependencies, developmental libraries, drivers, etc. so install all those
$] sudo apt update  $] sudo apt upgrade
$] sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python-pygoocanvas python-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python-matplotlib python-tk python-dev python-kiwi python-gnome2 python-gnome2-desktop-dev python-rsvg qt4-dev-tools qt4-qmake qt4-qmake qt4-default gnuplot-x11 wireshark
The above command make take some time to download, compile and install it, Be Patient.

TORA Protocol in NS-2.35 (NS2)

This post tells you how to enable the TORA (Temporally ordered routing Algorithm) protocol in Network Simulator 2 (ns-2.35)

TORA is a protocol in wireless adhoc networks that works with timing parameters. NS-2.35 comes with the TORA protocol by default but it has to be tweaked manually to make it run.
This post will help you to do that.

You can watch this video for detailed instructions:

Step 1: Generate a Scenario for TORA protoco using NS2 Scenario Generator NSG Software.
We have created a tcl file using NSG2.1.jar

$] java -jar NSG2.1.jar

Three files have to be modified
~ns-2.35/tora/ There are various websites that tells you how to configure TORA by making changes to the above three files.  Change 1: tora.h In the tora.h file, go to the end of the File before the agent completes, include these two lines

#include <classifier/classifier-port.h>
protected: PortClassifier *dmux_;

Change 2: Open the and include the follow…
