Simple Sockets is a cross platform socket library. It is different from other socket libraries which mix the application protocol and transport protocol layer (i.e. TCP sockets, UDP sockets, HTTP sockets, etc). This library focuses specifically on the transport protocols. Its features include blocking/non-blocking sockets, polling, thread safety, and signal safety.
