I came to codeguru just to browse early in my C programming career. I programmed mainly on Linux but I want to move to windows. I'm definitely not the strongest programmer, but I like the challenge sometimes. I'm not looking for COMPLETE answers here, just directions and pointers.

I want two separate programs to run on windows, very simple programs. These programs will communicate locally back and forth by sending irrelevant (at first) data. I want them to be able to detect and send data back and forth. Looking around, I've decided to use sockets. I am new to sockets ESPECIALLY on windows. Can anyone point me to a good tutorial or give me some info to look at that would help me in this programming endeavor.

I have been following these forums for a few months now. This is my first post, so I may have messed up somewhere, but this community seems great. Thanks guys!
