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?

Look for the Mulyicast web site at www.stardust.com:

http://www.stardust.com/hypermail/winsock2/subject.html

That is the best site on earth for gettting what you want. Look for the subject Multicast. Bob Quinn has created a document which is linked there. Name of the doc is::
 http://www.ipmulticast.com/community/whitepapers/ipmcapps.doc with contains even source code snippets

Best regards
ETE

A useful URL, but I could've found it myself with
a quick web search. I was hoping for specific details.
