    loooow-level socket programming

    I want to get as deep as I can get in sockets without having to learn hex. I heard this can be done in c++. I've been looking forever but I cant find anything.

    still doesnt explain much. you really dont need to get low-level with sockets ... i really cant think of a reason to do "low-level" sockets.

    Well, C++ does not "do" socket programming. c++ does not even know what a socket is. c++ is grammar, libraries are the words. Ask this question at a WinSock forum and you might get a better response.

    If you are on windows and assuming that "low level" means connection blocking and packet sniffing then you could look on the web for Winsock SPI's (Service Provider Interfaces)....though good luck as the documentation is thin and it is almost always writen by the same small group of MS documentors who seem to have problems writing simple tutorials
