    Creating a pseudo-chat program

    Could anyone help me use sockets to create a program that would allow a person to say, run a program, choose a person from a list of those currently using the program, and be able to send a message to them?

    Because you fear you may learn something you don't need right now?

    Have you searched THESE forum's? had you, you would have found that sockets have been asked about frequently. And, you would have tound links to good socket programming tutorials. Look at me, i read and wrote a simple chat client in two hours.
    Compilers:
    GCC on Red Hat 8.1 (Primary)
    GCC on Mac OS X 10.2.4 (Secondary)

    Others:
