Hi Zach and djgpp'ers

Yes, there is.  The company:

	NetManage, Inc.
	20823 Stevens Creek Blvd.
	Cupertino, CA 95014 USA
	Phone: (408) 973-7171

sells a socket libraries for both DOS and Microsoft Windows.  The DOS version --
which I have not used -- is called the DPA-Based DOS API socket library.  Of
course, this is a 16-bit library so one can't just link it with his 32-bit
djgpp application.  The documentation is readable and seems good enough.

The DOS libraries come with the NEWT-SDK TCP-IP software development kit for
windows.  The windows stuff gives you a Microsoft Windows Socket compliant
DLL.  I'm only starting to use this with MS Visual C++, but so far it works
and works like it would in UNIX.  (NOTHING else works like it would in UNIX.
MS Windows is like Bill Gate's garage, and he hasn't thrown anything away for
20 years!  ;-)  )
