    You can just use your favorite text editor to view the header files. Compiler writers should be good at commenting them. If you want information about a specific function you find in one of the header files just type man <function name> (i.e. man bind) at the command line.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    Question

    Hi,

    Thanks by your help. I am a beginner C programmer and i'd like to understand the headers files, yours functions, structs, etc.

    I search for docs that explains each headers files, in special the network headers. I try the man <function>, but any functions there isn't man pages.

    For a newbie, to read the .h files, not always elucidate the functions. Many times i don't understand the functions, structs, etc. Maybe examples, details informations help us to understand better.

    Thanks

    If your system doesn't have the man pages installed you can always google for them the same way (i.e. keyword search man bind). Also, the man pages tell you which header files you need to include for that function which is really helpful.

    For a good C networking tutorial, check out http://www.ecst.csuchico.edu/~beej/guide/net/html/
