How to Wire GFCI Receptacles


Greg, from Jersey City, New Jersey asks:
Could you help me to find diagrams for wiring a GFCI receptacle outlet from a switch?
I have 4"x4" electrical box mounted on a wall in a basement with 3 wires inside the box (black, white, ground) coming from a main electrical panel.
Could you help me with diagrams:
1. Diagram: Both sockets of GFCI receptacle are "hot" and powered from a single switch;
2. One of the socket of GFCI receptacle is "hot" all of the time, and the other one powered from a switch.
Thank you in advance,
Greg
