    typedef struct ProtocolSignature{

    } ProtocolSignature;




    This is an example of how to make a list of ProtocolSignature structures based on the HTTP protocol that supports the commands GET, POST and HEAD.

    char* supportedCommands[AMMOUNT_OF_SUPPPORTED_COMMANDS] = {"GET", "POST", "HEAD"};
    int main() {
    	createProtocolSignatureFromArray(supportedCommands, AMMOUNT_OF_SUPPPORTED_COMMANDS);
    char* createProtocolSignatureFromArray(char* p_array[], int ammountItems) {
    	int bufSize, i, tmpLen;
    	char* tmpBuf, *retBuf;
    	//Calculate the size of every integer that will contain the size of the command (that last one is zero)
    	bufSize = (ammountItems + 1) * sizeof(int);
    	//Calculate the size of the buf members for the ProtocolSignature structure
    	for(i=0; i<ammountItems; i++) {
    		bufSize += strlen(p_array[i]);
    	//Allocate size for the ProtocolSignature structure
    	retBuf = (char*) malloc(bufSize);
    	tmpBuf = retBuf;
    	//Copy every item with there size to the array
    	for(i=0; i<ammountItems; i++) {
    		tmpLen = strlen(p_array[i]);
    		*(int*)tmpBuf = tmpLen;
    		tmpBuf += sizeof(int);
    		strcpy(tmpBuf, p_array[i]);
    		tmpBuf += tmpLen;
    	*(int*)tmpBuf = 0;
    	return retBuf;
