Can someone point me to the documentation for the winsock unit? It doesn't appear to exist
in the html docs, nor in the pdf doc either. A google search turned up nothing. The unit
exists in the source tree, I have it installed, but where is the doc??
I have fpc-2.0.2 running on Linux, and have the complete lib/units/i-386-win32 library as
well. In the windows rtl directory there are other units, besides winsock; like windows,
wincrt, winevent, winmouse .... Where are the docs for these??

I did some socket programming on win32 recently and also first looked at
the Sockets unit.
I think that you are right that this unit is meant to be a cross
platform unit. But I found that it didn't work on win32, may be be
hasn't been finished yet. So I used the Winsock unit, which makes it
possible to call the win32 API's as documented by microsoft.
