socket io with iostream

I want to overload streambuf in the g++ iostream library to let me use iostream on tcp/ip sockets (and perhaps unix domain sockets too). Where can I find detailed descriptions of the rather cryptic methods in streambuf which I need to overload to make my streams work with sockets?

ftp://ftp.redhat.com//pub/contrib/RPMS/socket++-1.10-1.i386.rpm and
ftp://ftp.redhat.com//pub/contrib/SRPMS/socket++-1.10-1.src.rpm (if you want to use it on platforms other than Linux)
should help you.
Unfortunately, I failed to track the original location of a *.tar.gz, but README says it has been tested on several platforms.

Ok, that's pretty good, but the sources for socket++ are not much better than those for streambuf. I will rate your answer higher if you point me to information concerning functionality of the methods of the streambuf class itself (otherwise I will accept the current answer in a day or two at a slightly lower rating)
