    Q: What is Google? Can it help me find answers on the net?

    A: Yes, that's what search engines are made for. Look here: http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&ie...le+Suche&meta=

    Q: What is the PHP manual? Is there any useful information that goes further than the PHP language?

    A: The manual explains the language, it's API and much more about PHP. Sometimes it even has links to more information concerning a particular subject, e.g. sockets.

    http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.sockets.php

    Those unfamiliar with socket programming can find a lot of useful material in the appropriate Unix man pages, and there is a great deal of tutorial information on socket programming in C on the web, much of which can be applied, with slight modifications, to socket programming in PHP. The UNIX Socket FAQ might be a good start.
    And the FAQ is located here: http://www.developerweb.net/sock-faq/

    You do.

    Stevie, your question was so general in nature that I couldn't resist the tempatation to twist it into a little HowTo. The links in my post lead to more than enough introductory info, and the search for them was a 1 minute effort. If you have any specific questions about socket programming in PHP, I'll be glad to help as much as I can. But right now I'm wondering if your question would've been more appropriate in the Computer Programming forum, because it is... just so general.

    Ok?
