Legacy Network Kit (BeOS R5)
BeOS R5 contained a set of classes that provided C++ networking classes. The core of the functionality was in BNetEndpoint which represented a network endpoint that could be bound to a local address, or be connected to a remote endpoint. Data was sent using BNetBuffer as an intermediary. This class enabled sending and receiving data without doing too much memory management. The final part of the kit is the BNetAddress class, which is an object that represents a local or remote address.
Haiku is fully compatible with the BeOS R5 network kit, but we suggest you use the updated Network Kit when writing new(er) software.
