    Look up TCP/IP protocol. It will by default insure that every package sent is delivered. If it can't be then it attempts to resend. Where as UDP doesn't resend packets which is commonly used in games. If you really wanted you could use things like checksum.

    I had forgotten I asked this, lol. I figured it out soon after I posted. There is a funcion called select() that does the job wonderfully.
