TCP/IP library?

P: n/a
Is there any free software C++ library that:

1) Can listen on a socket creating a thread for each
socket accepted, so that the socket is automagickly closed when
the thread exits.
2) handle IPv6 vs IPv4 issues transparently.
3) Have a well designed API.
4) be as portable as possible, but definitely run on Linux?

Thank You.

I suppose that Paul knows how to search Google, as everyone knows. I
think He wanted to know what this NG considers a good library to his
purposes and why it is. These are not the informations you could get
from google.com.

I don't like contributions like yours.

Umm, why would you possibly want that? If you have 100 connections,
you'd have 100 threads doing nothing 99.9% of the time.

Do you have something against the socket libraries that *nix developers
have been using for years with much success?

Sorry for the off-topic reply. I thought I was in comp.os.linux.networking.

That doesn't make it topical though, does it. And I disagree with your
contention, I find that a number of people that post here seem to have
no idea how to do basic research.

I don't like yours either. So?
