TCP/IP Networking with Boost.Asio


Boost.Asio is a cross-platform C++ library for network and low-level I/O programming that provides developers with a consistent asynchronous model using a modern C++ approach.

This month, Richard Thomson will continue our look at Boost.Asio with a look at TCP/IP networking. We'll look at how to implement an NNTP (Network News Transport Protocol) client using Boost.Asio. NNTP is a line-oriented protocol for reading usenet news articles. This will give us insight into all the typical issues involved in a TCP/IP networking application:

  • How do we resolve a host name into an IP address?
  • How do we establish a long-lived connection to an NNTP server?
  • How do we handle the arbitrarily large amounts of data from an NNTP server that arrives asynchronously?
  • How do we coordinate user input with NNTP I/O?
  • How do we handle unexpected network errors?

This will be an online meeting, so drinks and snacks are on you!
