What is difference of SYNC, ASYNC, BLOCKING, NON-BLOCKING sockets?

    As I know, blocking socket means the user will stop until the request
    of the user to the stack returns, and non-blocking behaves in
    controverse way, but how about the sync and async socket, it seems sync
    and blocking is the same thing?
    Thanks for help!
