Re: sockets-winsock inclusion

Can anyone give me a hint of writing a

SOCKET program for client and server which should run both in windows as well as Linux

with no change in the code i welcome as many possible solutions to this as possible.

Re: sockets-winsock inclusion
Try using #ifdef to check for the OS type and include the appropriate header file.Also, do the same thing where the function name differs. I hope the idea is clear to you.
