Sockets on RH 9.0

I am trying to write a very simple sockets application. These are the files I am including.
Anything calls to anything defined in the sockets.h is ...undefined.

I have inclueded the following.

#include <assert.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <netdb.h>
#include <netinet/in.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>

I get messages about 'socket' being undeclared as well as 'closesocket'. Can someone post a simple example of just creating and then closing a socking in Linux. I'm using RedHat 9.0 and the Anjuta IDE.

I am coming from the windows world were I would include "sockets.h" and link to the wsock_32.lib. What is the equiv. procedure in the Linux/Unix world?
