I have just finished installing linux at home and could not find
any libraries or any reference to TLI sockets etc... Does linux
support TLI? Also, is there a threads package available for linux?
Don't confuse TLI and sockets. The sockets API is supported.
TLI lives on top of SYSV STREAMS, which is not supported. There
has been some discussion going on in one of the c.o.l.* news
groups about STREAMS support, and there is an entry in the
Linux Projects Map about STREAMS support.
On the short term you must use sockets.

I'm wondering if there has been or will be TLI support for Linux.
(For the un-initiated, TLI is Transport Layer Interface, an API used
by Solaris to allow programs to use difference network transports
such as TCP, UDP, IPX, etc. without having to rewrite (or even
recompile) the program).
