    Internet Programming for DOS Console

    I need to add internet functionality to my DOS Console program for a project i'm doing in class. I need to connect to another client (computer) and be able to chat with the client through DOS Console. I'm pretty sure I can the chat creation part down but I'm not too sure where to begin with the connecting to another client through the consoles part. Is Windows Internet Programming different from Console Internet programming or no cause I don't know the Windows API too well.

    HELP! Thanks in advance!

    do a google on 'winsock tutorials' or the like...
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }

    Or just check out Beej's Guide.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    so...much...to take in...brain can't take it. unfortunately that's probably the easiest to understand.
    Stupid people are useful. You can make them do all the mindless tasks you are too lazy to do yourself.

    He said "add functionality" to his console program, not run from console.

    KoolFriend:
    Winsock will work fine in both a console program and a windowed program, as long as you don't try using WSAAsyncSelect(), because you don't have a message loop in a console. If you aren't familiar with winsock yet, you can read Beej's tutorial (link posted above).
    Just Google It. √
