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.
