The C function
tcp_connect() is used by C clients to connect to some
server running on machine host at some port. It returns the newly
created socket. The following program fragment demonstrates the use of the C
tcp_connect() along with its companion C function
#include "tcp.h" int c,port; char *host; if(tcp_address_from_file(serverfile, &port, &host) != 0) ... an error occurred. c = tcp_connect(host, port); if (c == -1) ... an error occurred.
A fuller example of the above can be found in the demonstration program
