I Found a Great Network Programming Resource

About a month ago I posted on the forums asking about network programming and network libraries.

Today I stumbled across this really good resource, "Beej's Guide to Network Programming". It seems to be a seminal document on the topic, has had a lot of contributors, revisions, and translations. So I thought I'd share:

Beej's Guide to Network Programming:
http://beej.us/guide/bgnet/html/

Consequently, I also found the Google C++ Style Guide which also looks cool.

I'm also thinking it's a good ressource ;-)

The bad Beej point: nothing or so little windows testing. It kicked back a few times.

I also found a great book: Programming of Socket Linux of Sean Walton , explain much more that a network programming.

I'm almost certain that you've seen that before, Mark. That was the defacto guide ~14 years ago when I joined the forums. I think, like the rest of us, you're getting old. ;)

Guys what is the valid use case for programing networking connectivity
My gift to you
learn SQL and use it to merge your data layer and network layer. it will speed up your development 1000 fold and give you abilities beyond your wildest Dreams.

piccolo recommending SQL...

The effect of the Sativa Cannibal is over, now you must be suffering an involute as a side effect. Is knew that consuming too many drugs would not be good for health (overdose).

I had a better opinion of you, but to recommend something horrible to your friends... >:(

state your grieves, i will hash them out for you. I have been using sql professionally at an enterprise level my whole carrier i know its power and i and have found power in it that im am not sure if the average human programmer is aware of. once you start thinking in terms of organizational tables the implementations will through themselves at you effortlessly you will have to learn to dough like the matrix

Price. Proprietary. Shitty API. Monstrous overhead.
Smells like Java.

im agree with @GullRaDriel , maybe it has some good thing inside the MySQL or MariaDB code, but for that I have to gut it, take the best codes and create a new database engine. Which would take me 1 year and I don't feel like it. It offers me as little profit as using SQL directly.

those just subjective personal attack on the tech. my whole point is to start using a database the has network connectivity there are many to pick from. once you have a database you have a database i used free ms sql server. mysql is just as good. overhead is controllable with what you decided enable. one database can be for all your dev projects

PostgreSQL looks decent never used it. but the power in database is that the Tsql is a slandered

Seriously don't realize? All SQL related codes should fall out of date into oblivion, and being stacked as one of many failed codes, is normal. What is abnormal is taking the first failed job as something that works and encouraging its use until it becomes a monstrosity.

All SQL has to be scrapped and re-created from scratch with another better technology. :)
