Hello, Does Chicken support Slib and also has anybody created a win32 networking library (basic TCP/IP sockets, etc.)?


Chicken does indeed support SLIB, but only interpreted.
Of course nothing prevents one of compiling selective modules
of SLIB into library units, but I haven't yet digged
enough in the SLIB code to find the proper way of making this
work with `require'. But I see no problem with using SLIB in general.

If you need help using any specific part of SLIB, just ask.

There exist two socket-libraries for Chicken, one very nice one
by Tony Garnock-Jones, see:

Another one (not quite as powerful, though) can be found here:

Both or only tested under UNIX. I'm not very good in Win32
networking stuff, the few attempts at doing basic socket
programming under Windows didn't really work out that well... ;-)

But I can give it another try, if you like. Even better would
be some Win32-socket-savvy person helping me out a little!
