Hi Folks,
I've found a man page on my system for this command, but the command
itself can't be found. If anyone has any ideas how I can install this,
I'd much appreciate it!

Thanks,
Max.

Hi,

  I believe that the man page you are referring to describe the socket()
function.  This function is part of the C programming language, not part
of the shell command set.  The parenthesis "()" following the command
indicate that it is a function within a programming language.

Hoping that this helps,

RayH    :-)

Hi Raymond,
thanks! I'm not sure though. The reason I ask this question is because I'm
trying to set up the de* for the PHP language. The manual page for this
at

http://www.veryComputer.com/*.php3

Says to configure the socket like this....

How to set up the de*:

1.Set up a TCP port for the de* in the configuration file
(de*.port) and      enable it (de*.enabled).

  2.Set up a TCP listener on that port somewhere (for example socket -l -s
1400 on UNIX).

Which seems to indicate that there is a shell command for this. What do you
reckon?

Cheers,
Max.

1. Standard man pages to "Catted" man pages!

To Anyone Interested:

        How does one take a standard "troff"ed (?) man page that comes
with a package off the net (ending in .1, .2, etc) and turn in into a
compressed, "cat"ted man page (ending in .1.Z, .2.Z, etc) that are
stored in the directory /usr/man/catN (N = 1,2,3,...) that can be read
by the standard man utility that comes with the SLS distribution?  I'm
sure that this is trivial to do, and is probably written down
SOMEWHERE, but I've got only so many hours a day I can spend reading
FAQs and HOWTOs.  Thanx in advance...
