Here are my socket++ tracking results:

original author:
  Gnanasekaran Swaminathan <gs4t_at_[hidden]> dead address
  Gnanasekaran Swaminathan <sysgxs_at_[hidden]> dead address
  Gnanasekaran Swaminathan <sekar_at_[hidden]>

  He does not answer email at

  expressed interest in cleaning up and freshmeating it
    qnx support, added POP3

FreeBSD: sander <sander_at_[hidden]> claims gpl:
  When I questioned him, he states that he is no longer the package
  manager and that he must have had good reason for claiming gpl ness.

"Greg Lavender" <lavender_at_[hidden]>
     uses 1.10 version for class
   expressed intension/desire to rewrite from ground up in
   standard C++ under BSD style license. needs student to do

linux: Lauri Nurmi <lanurmi_at_[hidden]>
  1.11ln with some patches to build on linux, gcc 2.96(whatver?)

Other related libraries:

  cvs from worldforge

  provides just a socket stream


  bigendian, little endian streams,
  TCP stream, logging, vocabulary, extended filenames ***
  can link over open() providing extended file semantics

boost - more_io
  takes FILE* as constructor for stream
  works great for real files, but not for streams like from pipe

procbuf old gcc
  depracated not in libstdc++-v3

CommonC++ - A GNU Portable Application Framework <--nice project name :-)
  very comprehensive but kind of API-ish rather
  than library.

ACE - of course
