Are there standard C++ networking classes?

P: n/a
I've seen some networking toolkits for C++, but was wondering
if there were (or plans for) a standard set of networking
classes for C++?

Also, can someone tell me where I can find a comprehensive
class reference?
-Thanks

You may consider ACE/TAO is a powerful solution.

ACE/TAO is powerful, but it is too big and too complicated.

ACE/TAO is powerful, but it is too big and too complicated.

It is big in a development platform. But looks alright after compiled
into binary. I don't think it is too complicated. Its design is
reasonable and very good for project reusability and scalability.

Not at this time, no.

The C++ language does not have a "class reference", because it has no "class
library" like you might find in Java or C#. There is the "Standard Template
Library" (or just "STL"), which defines some templates (for things like
streams, containers, etc.). You might want to get a book on that subject.

If you're using some third-party class library (including
compiler-vendor-provided ones like MFC with VC++), then their documentation
is where to look.

Otherwise, there is no class reference for C++.
