Unix domain sockets example code?

Hi. I'm developing some code in C which I need to communicate with from other processes. I am thinking about Unix Domain Sockets, as I know I can implement them in Perl (which I am using for the other processes).

Does anyone have any handy example code or web resources I could take a look at?
