Description : lightweight convenience library to handle low level BSD sockets in C++
Socket++ library defines a family of C++ classes that can be used more
effectively than directly calling the underlying low-level system functions.
One distinct advantage of the socket++ is that it has the same interface as
that of the iostream so that the users can perform type-safe input output.
See your local IOStream library documentation for more information on
Development of the original socket++ died some years ago, and a new
upstream has taken control. The original socket++ ended at version 1.11.
Lauri Nurmi modified the source code to make Socket++ compile with recent
GCC under linux. This version is fork of the code from Lauri Nurmi which
was just some enhancements to make it standard conforming at version 1.11.

That was not the intention. It is a free code. You can modify,
copy, and distribute and use it in anyway as you see fit.
Other people are maintaining it and ported it to different
OSes. Other than that, not much has changed as far as I know.
I haven't looked at it recently.
