And of course it must work with unix/os 10. Not some windows programing book. Comments Reply 1 of 3 whee Posts: 46member June 6, 2002 12:26PM I found a <a href="http://www.kohala.com/start/" target="_blank">few books</a> written by W. Richard Stevens that seem to get pretty good reviews. There's also a few online articles linked <a href="http://blacksun.box.sk/books/format.php3?file=unix.htm" target="_blank">here</a> (near the bottom, the ones on sockets) that look like a good way to get an overall idea of some aspects.Any book/article about BSD sockets should be useful, because it'll work in OS X.

Once you get a basic chat proggie working, than you can learn more from manpages. Thats how I learned, and I'm pretty darn good at net prog'g now. by-the-by, that site uses procedural programming (c), so if you want a (c++/objc/java/..) class you'd have to write your own around the code he gives. Also to note: i think windows sockets ("winsocks") are also based on BSD sockets, but i aint sure. Sign In or Register to comment.
