LAN Messenger in C++
I am a newbie to C++ and I need to submit a project proposal in my class next week. I intend making a LAN Messenger using C++. Can anyone plz advise me which books and/or tutorials, I should refer to for this (so far I've found out that I need to know socket programming). I also plan to use Windows Forms in Visual C++ for the GUI.
Any help will truly be appreciated.
There can be a lot of libraries for sockets in C++. I suggest to use the Visual C++ ones, since you are going to use it. Download Visual Studios, as well, if you have not got them already.
Can u tell me which ones are they... Also it'd be better if I could refer to some books regarding socket programming. even online tutorials would be good.
