Asynchronuous Socket handling

i am  working on an IRC Client...till now i am doing Synchronuous I/O...i mean for sending data i am using send() and for recieving data i am using recv() in a differnt thread...it is working all right but i want to change this to asynch stuff but cannt find any example...i want to handle send and recieve operations in a single thread Asynchronuously...any help will be greatly appreciated

Regards

Is the project an MFC, Win32-App, or Win32-Console?

Win32 app...as i said i am using send() and recv() API's no CSocket or ASyncSocket

So what is your question?  If you're familiar with both blocking socket calls and with Windows message processing, you already understand this.  Rather than perform a network action when you call it the WINSOCK asynch calls queue the request and return to your app.  When the request completes (either sucessfully or with an error) your app will be sent a message about it.

I find that the best way to structure such a program is using a "state machine" to track the network operations as they progress.  This prevents having to have a separate message queue for each type of network event and therefore having to implement a bunch of global vars.

Next is snippet from Davide code:
...
int SvrConnectTimeout(SOCKET SockFD, const struct sockaddr * pSockName, int iNameLen,
                        int iTimeout)
{

    WSAEVENT        hConnectEvent;

    if ((hConnectEvent = WSACreateEvent()) == NULL)
        return (-1);

    WSAEventSelect(SockFD, hConnectEvent, FD_CONNECT);

    int iConnectResult = WSAConnect(SockFD, pSockName, iNameLen, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL);

    int iConnectError = WSAGetLastError();

    if ((iConnectResult != 0) && (iConnectError == WSAEWOULDBLOCK))
     {
        DWORD           dwWaitResult,
                        dwEntryCount = GetTickCount();

        while ((dwWaitResult = WSAWaitForMultipleEvents(1, &hConnectEvent, FALSE,
                                dwStepTimeout, TRUE)) != WSA_WAIT_EVENT_0)
        {
            if (dwWaitResult == WSA_WAIT_FAILED)
                break;

            if ((iTimeout > 0) &&
                    ((iTimeout * 1000) < (int) (GetTickCount() - dwEntryCount)))
                break;

            if (CallIdleProc() < 0)
                break;
        }
        iConnectResult = (dwWaitResult == WSA_WAIT_EVENT_0) ? 0 : -1;
    }

    WSAEventSelect(SockFD, hConnectEvent, 0);
    WSACloseEvent(hConnectEvent);

    return (iConnectResult);

}
....
Full project contens many such examples.
I hope, it helps. Alex
