    click up a terminal and do a
    man 2 read
    man 2 write

    If you look at the bottom of man pages you might see somethhing like
    accept(2), bind(2), connect(2), fcntl(2), getpeername(2), getsock-

    which indicates you may find more information by doing something like
    man 2 connect.

    Want to find code examples.

    select() is the tool. man select, or Google.

    Next time, please cross-post, if you really need to
    post to multiple newsgroups. Now the responses from
    different groups are separate, and much of the info
    will be duplicated.
