SOCKET++ - C++ iostream like library for sockets and pipes

The code was oringially developed by Gnanasekaran (Sekar) Swaminathan (gs4t@virginia.edu), at the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Virginia, a few years ago. The master repository was ftp://ftp.virginia.edu/pub.

Version 1.10 does not include C++ exception handling, and it therefore "more portable".

Version 1.11 has a number of changes that make it less portable. I recommend that you use version 1.10 unless you want to try out using exception handling, then you can try using version 1.11. If you use version 1.11, then you will need to catch exceptions in your mail client.
