Is there any support for network programming in C++

P: n/a
Hi,
I was wondering, is there any support for network programming in C++.
Java doesn't seem to lack in this arena. Socket programming is very
simple in Java. Does C++ have any libraries for networking, whether
standard or 3rd party?
Thank you.

I am afraid that it doesn't. There are some many libraries of networking
programming for various platforms.

There is no networking in standard C++, but you can use:
www.wxwindows.org or

Java is great for network applications. Plus it is platform
independent. Why use C++ then?

If you really, trully want to use C++, you can use some 3rd party C++
library (non-standard though).

No. However...

It's very likely your operating system supports the POSIX
specification. If so, it's possible to use the POSIX networking
calls: socket(), connect(), accept() etc. There are probably C++
wrapper libraries available.
