Hi,
    I've some doubts regarding plugin development. 

(1) How to compile the samples provided with mozilla?
(mozilla/modules/plugin/tools/sdk/samples/basic/unix).
I could only find Makefile.in file there. How to
generate Makefile from this?

My system : x86, Fedora Core 5, gcc : 4.1.0

(2) Is there any major difference between a plugin and
an application? I mean any limitation like that of
java applets?

(3) Can a plugin open local TCP port and send/receive
data to/from remote machines like ordinary C++
programs?

(4) Can a plugin access/modify local files?

Can someone please answer me?

Thanks
shamju joseph
