Has anyone tried to create a socket using the libinet.a that comes
with ISC's X11 development package?
The code in it's simplest form would be:
s = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
And then linked via "cc -o sock sock.c -linet" (assuming the file
is named sock.c).
I've tried every combination of format (e.g. AF_INET) and type (e.g.
SOCK_STREAM) and the socket() call always returns -1 (meaning error).
ISC's X11 server appears to open a Unix domain socket (AF_UNIX with
I don't have ISC's TCP/IP package, only the libinet.a library that comes
with the X11 libraries.
Does anyone know how to create and use a socket with this library?
