Using Internet Sockets

(Click here for other guides!)

(Notably, this is a WIP
guide to general C Programming right here!
)

Hello, one and all! This is my little how-to guide on network
programming using Internet sockets, or “sockets programming”, for
those of you who prefer it. The sockets API, though started by the
Berkeley folk, has been ported to many many platforms, including Unix,
Linux, and even Windows.

Unfortunately, it can be a little, um, “much” to digest the API, but as
long as you know some C or C++,
this guide should springboard you into the realm of network programming
with hopefully as little hassle as humanly possible!
