I want to learn how to use direct play.  Where is there information about it?  I would like to see a sample.  I have never used it before.  Please send information about direct play.  Samples would be best.  Don't point me to the codeguru.com sample tanks game.  Iwant a simple example that simply demonstrates how to send data over the connection.  Just something simple.  Please.  Thank you.

The first link has nothing useful at all about direct play.

The second one has an example but it is in pascal or basic or something like that which is not what I want.

The third proved to be at least somewhat useful, but there were a lot of dead links.

Do you have others?
