2.5 Socket Programming

We will assume a basic facility with the Berkeley Sockets API in the examples used in this tutorial. If you are new to sockets, we recommend reviewing the API and some common usage cases. For a good overview of programming TCP/IP sockets we recommend TCP/IP Sockets in C, Donahoo and Calvert.

There is an associated web site that includes source for the examples in the book, which you can find at: http://cs.baylor.edu/~donahoo/practical/CSockets/.

If you understand the first four chapters of the book (or for those who do not have access to a copy of the book, the echo clients and servers shown in the website above) you will be in good shape to understand the tutorial. There is a similar book on Multicast Sockets, Multicast Sockets, Makofske and Almeroth. that covers material you may need to understand if you look at the multicast examples in the distribution.
