C++ Sockets

C++ Sockets
This is a GPL licensed C++ class library wrapping the Berkeley sockets C API. It treats one socket as one object. KThis is how the Socket class was born. This class, in itself, has all the functions needed for address translation (hostname to ip, ip to hostname etc). It owns the file descriptor / SOCKET handle. But it can't do anything. Code for actually doing something with the socket is implemented in other, Socket derived classes.
