The Socket++ Project Homepage will be moved to www.linuxhacker.at/socket++.
New Releases can be found on the new site. Please update your link.
Socket++ library defines a family of C++ classes that can be used more
effectively than directly calling the underlying low-level system functions.
One distinct advantage of the socket++ is that it has the same interface
as that of the iostream so that the users can perform type-safe input output.
See your local IOStream library documentation for more information on iostreams.
Socket++ was developed by Gnanasekaran Swaminathan <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
However, it appears that the development has ended. The latest version released
by him is 1.11.
Lauri Nurmi <email@example.com> modified the source code to make Socket++ compile with recent GCC versions (under Linux, i386): "I have not added any new features, just made the code more standard-conforming" (see http://users.utu.fi/lanurm/socket++/)
