QueueSocket 1.0 for REALbasic


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

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
