Hey people!

I've been programming C for a while and I have decided to try and delve into socket programming for Linux. I picked up a book (Linux Socket Programming by Warren Gay; Que pub) and have started reading through it.

I just wanted to call upon you guys to see if you had any good online resources or maybe some tips for me starting out.

Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks

Make use of the man pages. I've heard 'Unix Network Programming' & 'TCP/IP Illustrated', both by W. Richard Stevens, are good.

Beejs-guide is pretty much the classic document to read for socket-programming. I think it's pretty cool.
