Sample Source Code
The sample source code is no longer included in the faq. To get it,
please download it from one of the unix-socket-faq www pages:
If you don't have web access, you can ftp it with ftpmail by following
the following instructions. Please do not use the ftp server if you
have access to the web, since computain.com is connected only by a
28.8 modem, and you'd be amazed how much traffic this faq generates.
To get the sample source by mail, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org,
with no subject line and a body like this:
reply <put your email address here>
Save the reply as examples.uu, and type:
% uudecode examples.uu
% gunzip examples.tar.gz
% tar xf examples.tar
This will create a directory called socket-faq-examples which contains
the sample code from this faq, plus a sample client and server for
both tcp and udp.
Note that this package requires the gnu unzip program to be installed
on your system. It is very common, but if you don't have it you can
get the source for it from:
If you don't have ftp access, you can obtain it in a way similar to
obtaining the sample source. I'll leave the exact changes to the body
of the message as an excersise for the reader.
