    C++ Project. Sockets?

    Im currently learning C++, working through Accelerated C++ and PPP. I will shortly be creating a small card game to test my knowledge.

    Initially it will be text only, to get the basic mechanics working and then I will be creating basic graphics using SDL.

    My query is, if I then wanted to host this on a site so that I could, for example, play against a friend, what would I need to read up on? Would it be sockets?

    Any online resources or book recommendations would be gratefully received.

    Thanks.

    Sockets and networking, yep.

    People always seem to like this site:
    Beej's Guide to Network Programming
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
