QUEUESOCKET 1.0 RELEASED
31 JULY 2002 — QueueSocket 1.0, the first complete open-source Socket
solution for REALbasic developers, was released today from developer Drew
Hamlin of Vizspring Software.
QueueSocket is the first open-source solution made available to REALbasic
developers to improve Internet and network communication using the Socket
control. QueueSocket provides a simple introduction program as well as a
complex, fully developed Network Tic-Tac-Toe game with accompanying source
code and internet tracker application.
QueueSocket was created based on the fundamental principal that all data
can fit into a queue data type, which in turn can be converted into a
string and sent across a local network or the Internet.
QueueSocket is available for free download and royalty-free use from
(http://www.drewhamlin.com/realbasic/). QueueSocket is distributed under
the GNU GPL license and is OSI certified as part of the Open Source
Initiative at (http://www.opensource.com)
QueueSocket was developed using REALbasic 4.5, but is backwards compatible
with little or no code revision, depending on the REALbasic version.
REALbasic Developer Drew Hamlin has also previously released CommonTasks, a
module with commonly used REALbasic methods such as CenterWin() and
GetOS(). Drew Hamlin is best-known for his work at Vizspring Software where
he has created the well-known and Macworld Magazine acclaimed Typeset and
ThrobberEdit applications. To learn more about Drew Hamlin and Vizspring
