Searching for a tutorial/book on socket programming


Hi,

I am taking a course on "Socket Programming on The Linux Platform" and so would like to have some reference book/tutorial to read along. I've googled this and got some good stuff but also got a lot of crap.

Also since I am a complete n00b in this field so I would like to ask someone who has experience in this field and could guide me in making a good choice of reference material for a good tutorial/book (possibly downloadable through the internet).

Thanx in anticipation.

Sockets programming to a C API these days is somewhat tedious. "Unix Network Programming, Volume I" (ISBN 0131411551) is considered a pretty good reference in this regard. A lot of higher level languages make socket programming much easier. For example, socket programming in Python is a snap.

Also thanks Juanbobo I already knew about that guide but now I'll feel even more comfortable and confident in going through with it.
