This documentation is incomplete. I would love your help to finish it up. Until that time, please read the documentation in the
sock.h header file.
sock library was born to solve many concerns that pop up when using the system sockets API directly.
On systems that have unreasonably high open file limits, the sock library will artificially limit the open socket count to a reasonably high default that can be adjusted during compile time using the
LIB_SOCK_MAX_CAPACITY macro (currently, 131,072 open files).
It supports TCP/IP sockets as well as unix doamin sockets. Pipes can also be attached to the library.
sock.h API can be divided into a few different categories:
General helper functions
Accepting connections and opening new sockets.
Sending and receiving data.
