I don't recall how tutorial his work was but that is where I got the example programs I started with. If you know any Perl you might want to play with sockets there, first, because the exposed interface is similar to C/C++ and the perlipc man page is amazingly filled with details. That is where most of my students start.

Many people will tell you that you should start at a higher level than sockets. Socket programming is the assembly language of distributed systems. There are several books out there on Network Programming Frameworks (I am not sure any are really worth reading but they present interesting libraries).

A Unix-centric explanation with source code in C can be found at http://www.uwo.ca/its/doc/courses/notes/socket/.

Good luck, -bcl
