    network programming

    so i have just finished a c programming class at school and have a decent understanding of it, and i want to learn more even though i will be starting java in 3 weeks. I wanted to try and make a instant messenger program in c. i was looking through my java book and saw they made a im client and server in java and it didnt look too bad.

    now i havent even touched network programming, i know structs, pointers, file i/o, arrays, the basic stuff.

    first question is is this too much for me to handle?

    and if it not can anyone point me to a good tut on network programming i have been looking around and havent really found any.

    if this is something i should just wait till i learn java to do just let me know.

    thanks!
