Multicast under winsock2

I'm attempting to use IP multicast using the new winsock2
interface. Unfortunately, the documentation is inadequate.
I need example code for how to join or leave a multicast group using the WSAJoinLeaf. Also, when and how can I set the time-to-live on a socket?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
