    socket programming - BEGINNER

    ok, maybe someone already asked this before but here it goes again.

    My friend told me learn about socket programming over the summer and i have NO background in socket stuff. So i was wondering if anyone can guide me in the right direction.

    I know a fair bit in C++ (pointers, new/delete, AVL-trees, etc). I also have some knowledge in Assembly (motorolla 68HC11), so i know some stuff about ports and stuff (not sure if it's relavant to socket programming)

    but yeah, umm.. what books or steps should i take to be successful in learning socket programming? Do i need to learn C first? what are some good "beginner" to socket programming tutorials? is it better to learn about sockets or multithreading first?

    thanks.

    One good reference for socket programming is CodeProject.

    yes, but I doubt if you finish that in 21 day... but they have good information.
