    TCP/IP and Socket programming

    I'm just curious as to how difficult this is in C. I'm a J2EE/.NET guy and a project has come up where they need someone to code in C with TCP/IP and sockets, probably more lower level than I've ever done. Trying to guage the learning curve and how long it would take me to get up to speed. Thanks.

    Well, its not rocket science, if you've done coding already, I'm sure you'll pick it up easy enough.

    I'd point you at this tutorial but its mainly aimed at *nix, although some of the code is usable on Windows too.

    I'm guessing you want Windows programming? Sockets are really OS dependant, so its better to ask questions in a platform specific forum. Let me know for sure this is Windows, and I'll move the thread to the Windows board (or the Linux one if need be).
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I haven't been told which platform yet, but I would assume Linux/UNIX. All I know right now is TCP/IP and socket coding using C.
