    reference needed for socket programming with arpa/inet.h, sys/select.h, error.h

    Dear there,

    I had difficulty to use an beta version API, which is based on the following three head files.
    // LINUX
    // includes
    #include <arpa/inet.h>
    #include <errno.h>
    #include <sys/select.h>

    I searched online for socket programming and got tons of references, most of them are for internet socket programming, which seems far away from what I am doing. I only call the API to connect to an application running on the same machine.

    Would anyone point me to a few highly relevant tutorials, books or references?

    Sincerely Yours,
    Michael

    There's not much of a difference between connecting to a remote machine, and connecting to the local machine. Here is a good tutorial/reference on how to do socket programming.
