    Network (Winsock) Programming

    Hi,

    I intend to learn network (winsock) programming. offlate I have been skimming through the net to look for resources, however, I have not been able find any relevant ones.

    Most of the resources (Beej's Guide , Unix Network Programming - Richard Stevens) are Unix / Linux OS based but I intend to learn Windows Network Programming (And not take the Unix/linux route)

    I found one book related to windows by Jim Ohlund but its obsolete and also half as comprehensive as Unix Network Programming.

    Are there any resources or books that I can use to learn Windows Network programming.If yes, Please help.

    Thanks!

    Beej's guide is relevant, except that you have to be aware that there are some differences, some of which are covered in the Note for Windows Programmers, others which can be found reading the relevant documentation, etc.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Hi ..

    As i first looked at C programming of sockets and such....but just came to the conclusion to use a Language more designed for the job....In my case it was Java....

    So is there any benifit's to doing it using C ..?
