     A new class implementation of Winsock API. By style close to the native Winsock control and other class implementations such as CSocket and CSocketMaster, so you don't need to learn or rewrite much of existing code. The new and cool part about this class is that it is just one class file. Also, it performs better (by speed) and handles errors a bit more cleanly (you aren't forced to close the socket each time an error occurs). Other speciality is transparent Unicode support: when you switch to text mode, you start receiving TextArrival event instead of DataArrival and start getting individual lines. These lines are automatically Unicode if received line is UTF-8 or UTF-16! ANSI lines require you to use StrConv to get an usable string, thus you have the power on what to do with the raw data before any conversion has affected it. **** Support thread and documentation: **** Special thanks to Paul Caton and LaVolpe for their work on SelfSub, SelfHook and SelfCallback. **** UPDATE 2008-08-12: Now Vista compatible!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
