NetStreams Publisher's description
Network communication ActiveX library - TCPIP, IRDA
Network communication ActiveX library based on WinSock 1.1, designed to work with newObjects ActiveX Pack1 to provide file-like techniques for network operations. Can be used in scripting and other environments to construct client and server applications. It is concentrated on (but not limited) TCP/IP and IRDA and provides easy to use flexible set of components for usage in various applications. The connections once made can be driven through the newObjects ActiveX Pack1 (AXPack1) stream/file support facilities which enables the application to benefit of all the features in the pack compatible with non-seekable streams. This includes textual, binary and record based access to the connection. Also the threading support for scripting provided by the AXPack1 enables the developers build scripting components or applications performing tasks usually associated with applications written in C++. This includes server software implementation, client code to fetch, query, access data through any top level protocol (such as HTTP, IMAP, POP3, SMTP and so on). And all the details can be implemented in script while the critical low level transfer is performed by the components. Two goals are achieved this way - the code that does the specific work is easy to change and improve and still the performance and the low level oprations depends on well tested universal components. Thus the implementation of the high level operations (through own or standard protocols such as HTTP, FTP, SMTP and others) can be in script or another easy to use language that uses the NetStreams library which provides packing of the WinSock functionality at a level convenient for use in high level programming environments and languages. The library provides lookup, socket configuration and the other facilities the application may need.
