Network Programming References


Because network programming concepts are beyond the scope of Maple's documentation, several references to background information on this topic are provided below.


The general network programming references are divided into two sections according to whether the exposition is oriented towards network programming in a UNIX or Windows environment.


The third section lists relevant Internet RFCs (Requests for Comments) that appear elsewhere in the documentation for the Sockets package.
