Dear Expert,

I want to develop applications which depend on networking. I have got books in which sample networking applications uses net.h and sys.h C++ header files. In my C++ these files are not there. So, I am unable to compile those programs and learn network programming.

Kindly help me in getting these header files. If download of them is available on net then please give the URL.

Thank You.

VM.

Turbo C++ is for DOS ... Network programming in DOS may not be pretty ...

I suggest that you get a newer compiler ... cygwin + windows port of gcc is one good option ... another will be something like devshed C++ or VC++
