Search the dev-mud archives on Kanga.Nu, too. You might find some
over-kill code there.

Note that code that works on a UNIX machine will work on Windows
as well - just add WSAStartup and WSAShutdown calls. You'll also
have to fiddle the error handling a bit, but other than that, its
pretty straightforward.

Don't design inefficiency in - it'll happen in the implementation.
