    Can some one help me with a sockets example, please?

    Hi, I been trying to learn stocket programming for a while (lol, like half a year) and still really havent understand what goes into a cilent and server code.

    I was wounding if someone could make me a example of the 2 sides; also I was wounding how to send data over to the server side and back, like a messager. Mostly just looking for examples - source code. I learn better that way.

    Trying to do this in C++ using windows, Dev-C++ complier.

    Have you read "beej" yet?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Actully I have, it help me understand what the code does and how it works, I just cant seem to get the socket to work all togather in the codes for each side. Another reason why I would like examples to see how all togather how it works- but like a simplier version of it.

    I thought the one in beej was about as simple as it was possible to get.

    Yea it is, dont get me wrong, thats how I know what most of the commands lines do and work, but see, I dont really get the flow on how it works. + I learn better playing with something all ready made then having to make it if that makes sense? Kinda like a idea on how its going to work. Beej does try this with examples in c, witch is good, but I get lost reading it half the time.

    Throw some printf() statements in there, and watch what happens.

    If you get lost half the time, then read it twice that way you won't get lost at all.

    You're going to have a hard time with future concepts if you can't follow tutorials. It's not really learning if you have the finished product, because you don't *actually* understand what's going on. It's like if you had a car motor for example, sure you'd be able to fix it without knowing much about motors, but without learning about the motor in depth it'd be impossible to build your own.

    I can break almost anything with little or no knowledge

    I can follow tutorials, its how I learn c++ from little programs/test like on this site and others, I just dont understand the flow with their examples really. (hard to example sorry-)

    And as for the finished product, yes your right, you wont really learn from having the finish product if you dont even get whats going on in the program but I want to use it for more reference to what they talk about then actully to learn out of no where on. Like "lisen on port whatever" then I can look at the code example and be like oh thats it, then find how that code works by looking around or links that it goes to; like for example "a = b;", so you want to know what "a" and "b" could be "int a;" "int b;" so most likey "a" and "b" is a number or some bad input.

    The motor example kinda doesnt go to good with me XD lol, I would proablly be turning that motor inside out figuring how it works and why then make it into a generator (witch I kinda did).
