im coming from python and using a language which is crossplatform and no differentiation between socket usage.
i just learned ansi c, now i am trying to write my first real application. theres no gui just a command line interface. its a windows app - where can i learn about winsock and c programming? also, now that i switch from ansi c to windows c programming, what FREE compiler can i use ...? thanks in advance, im lost in the water here.
