Network wrappers

This article was submitted .

A set of C++ classes wrapping the Windows network APIs.

The following wrappers are available.

  • Named Pipes - Encapsulates the Win32 Named Pipes API.
  • TCP/IP - IP through the Winsock API.
  • Mail Slot - Wraps the Mail Slot functions.
All classes are simple wrappers that share a similar interface. Not all protocol functionality is captured in each class, but can be accessed through the defined C++ operator overloads.

For a discussion about the use of Mail Slots, see my Mail Slot COM component.
