Hello all,

I've got a largish application I'm helping to port from unix, aix,
vms, etc... to dos.  It depends on a 32-bit environment (djgpp...)
and that some sort of communication medium is available (serial, lan,
tcp/ip).  It works rather well under MSDOS, but I haven't found a
useable (unix-like) tcp/ip library for use under DOS.  I tried the
sample program (pktdrvr.c) and it works just fine (except that it uses
a low level interface, and not 'socket()', 'bind()', 'accept()', etc
that I need).

Anyway, my questions are:

1) is there a tcp/ip library for dos that provides a unix networking
   interface, and (if not):

2) where would I find enough documentation to write functions to
   emulate the functionality that I need.
