The Sockets Client API provides a generic interface to communications protocols through communication end points known as sockets. These include sending and receiving data, establishing connections and configuring network protocols. In addition to sockets, the Sockets Client API provides access points to other network facilities such as hostname resolution, service resolution, protocol information and various byte manipulation utilities.
For eaxample, the SSL/TLS capabilities can be used through the EPOC socket interface.
