I want to create a multi-chat UDP that can run in UNIX or Mac OSX systems. Can you provide me an advice on how it can be done? Or at least an overview of my goals and what I are the pros and cons of my goals. Thanks in advance.
How To Create Multi-Chat UDP
TCP requires a connection as you may know, but UDP requires no connection at all, you send your data right out. UDP packets may be lost or arrive in an odd order since they don't have the checking that is associated with TCP.If you are using a winsock-like object, just make sure to bind to a local port, then send or listen for data, no need to .connect("bleh.com",80) or anything.
