What is TWM-TCP/IP?

TwmTcpip is a package of object oriented Pascal units which makes it much easier to access sockets under TCP/IP. The archive contains source code, pre compiled units for Virtual Pascal v2.0 for OS/2 as well as for Win32 and two sample programs precompiled for OS/2 and Win32.
The files use long file names so you must use HPFS (or FAT32 with the driver form Hank Kelder) under OS/2.

The following is an incomlete list of features:

  • Low level functions to access the DLLs SO32DLL and TCP32DLL (OS/2) respectively WSOCK32 (Win32) directly.
  • A tSocket class which provides a much more convenient interface for that
  • An abstract tSockClient class which can easily be extended to write client programs for socket oriented services
  • An implementation of such a client: tPop3Client, a class to retrieve emails from a Pop3 (post office protocol version 3) server.
  • Another implementation: tSmtpClient, a class to send emails to a SMTP (simple mail transfer protocol) server.
  • Two sample programs which use the two mentined classes
  • Comprehensive online documentation in English in VPH (Virtual Pascal Help) format.
