I am trying to learn how to program sockets using C, but every source code or tutorial I have seen includes "sys/socket.h". My compiler does not have this header and I can't find it on the net can someone point me in the right direction?

I'm assuming you're using Visual Studio on Windows. To do that, you first include <winsock2.h> and then include <windows.h>. Then you link against ws2_32.lib.

Don't forget to call WSAStartup( MAKEDWORD( 2, 2 ) ) before you actually create any sockets. You might also want to google for a WinSock specific tutorial.

If you're using some other environment, then go to the manuals for that environment and figure out where the "socket" function comes from.
