hi!
I have a unix code that basically creates a Socket of Internet family (Socket type -Stream type). I need to convert this code to WIndows (VC 6.0). For this reason I need to change some of the header files existing in the Unix code.
What I need to know is the corresponding windows header files for these unix header files.
The Unix header files are
<sys/Types.h>
<sys/Socket.h>
<netinet/in.h>
<arpa/inet.h>
<sys/wait.h>
<signal.h> (makes use of Sigaction for a signal action>

If you know of some links that has such a mapping,I would really appreciate that.

Thanks
rahul

I guess  winsock and winsock2.h take care of the socket programming aspect. Do these files include code for Internet family sockets?
What about signals. Are they also taken care of in these header files??
Would you recommend using MFC classes to do socket Programming than the conventional Wiin32 style programming?

>>What about signals. Are they also taken care of in these header files??

Signals work (partly), see signal.h on that, not all are supported. For a general overview, see
