The Linux Socket Programming book cites several programs which were too lengthy to include entirely in the text. This page gives you access to all the complete and commented code listings.

smart-select.c Combines multitasking with select() system call.
test-server.c General server tester.
urgent-receiver.c
urgent-sender.c
Example of send and receiving urgent (out of band) messages.

Chapter 10: Designing Robust Linux Sockets
restart-example.c Example restarting a wayward process (WARNING: it does not always work!).
sigpipe-client.c
sigpipe-server.c
Example of getting and capturing the EPIPE signal.

Chapter 12: Using Java's Networking API
DatagramIO.java Datagram messenger
SimpleEchoClient.java
SimpleEchoServer.java
Client/server without I/O stream translation.
EchoClient.java
EchoServer.java
Client/server with I/O stream translation.
ObjectReceiver.java
ObjectSender.java
Sending and receiving objects.
SimpleMulticastDestination.java
SimpleMulticastSource.java
Simple multicast example.
SimplePeerDestination.java
SimplePeerSource.java
Simple datagram example.
MessageGroupWindow.java
MessageWindow.java
GUI-based datagram/multicast examples.
ThreadedEchoServer.java Threaded echo server.
WindowChat.java GUI-based socket (TCP) messenger.
ErrorDialog.java General GUI error display.
IPv6Test.java IPv6-support verifier.

Chapter 13: Designing and Using a C++ Socket Framework
socket.cpp
socket.h
Entire C++ framework.
echo-client.cpp
echo-server.cpp
Echo client/server example.
broadcast-peer.cpp
multicast-peer.cpp
Broadcast/multicast examples.
peer-caller.cpp
peer-replier.cpp
Dual program example for datagrams.
peer.cpp Peer-to-peer datagram example.

Chapter 15: Network Encapsulation with Remote Procedure Calls (RPCs)
Time Server Makefile.rpctime This is a very simplified program that demonstrates passing scalar (simple) variables through an RPC connection. The rpcgen program creates all files from the .x file.
rpctime.h
rpctime.x
rpctime_client.c
rpctime_clnt.c
rpctime_server.c
rpctime_svc.c
Process Table Server Makefile.rpcproc This program extends the types to include strings. The program's server opens a pipe to 'ps' and sends the resulting strings to the client. The new XDR file helps with data type conversion.
rpcproc.h
rpcproc.x
rpcproc_client.c
rpcproc_clnt.c
rpcproc_server.c
rpcproc_svc.c
rpcproc_xdr.c
Linked List Server Makefile.rpclist The rpcgen program allows you to create dynamic data types and send them over the communication link. It has some interesting limitations, though, which the book covers in detail.
rpclist.h
rpclist.x
rpclist_client.c
rpclist_clnt.c
rpclist_server.c
rpclist_svc.c
rpclist_xdr.c
List-Process Table Server Makefile.rpcps This program merges the list and proc-table programs to create a fielded, dynamic memory process information query.
rpcps.h
rpcps.x
rpcps_client.c
rpcps_clnt.c
rpcps_server.c
rpcps_svc.c
rpcps_xdr.c

Chapter 16: Adding Security to Network Programs and SSL
ssl_client.c The SSL (with the OpenSSL API) client/server uses the standard socket interface as the starting point, and then, it does the handshaking for a secure connection.
ssl_server.c

Chapter 17: Sharing Messages with Multicast, Broadcast, and Mbone
bcast_client.c Broadcasting, an older method of sharing information uses the network mask to send and receive general messages. Multicast replaces broadcast as a more WAN-friendly solution. Until multicasting is fully supported on the Internet, Mbone acts as a virtual network using IP-over-IP protocols.
dgram_echo.c
mcast_client.c

Chapter 18: The Power of Raw Sockets
myping.c Raw sockets permit you to experiment with nearly zero-level protocols, simplifying custom protocols.
mytrace.c
ping.c

Chapter 19: IPv6: The Next Generation to IP
client_v6.c When written right, converting to IPv6 from IPv4 is very simple and only requires a few changes. These examples show the few changes in socket creation and setup.
server_v6.c
