QUEUESOCKET 1.0.1 RELEASED
3 SEPTEMBER 2002 — QueueSocket, the first complete open-source Socket
solution for REALbasic developers, was updated to version 1.0.1 today from
developer Drew Hamlin of Vizspring Software.
QueueSocket is the first and only 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.
Version 1.0.1 fixes a bug where DataAvailable() in the instance of a class
would be called, even when no data was on the queue due to incorrectly
formatted incoming text.
QueueSocket is available for free download and royalty-free use from
(http://www.drewhamlin.com/realbasic/). QueueSocket is distributed under
the GNU General Public License and is OSI certified as part of the Open
Source Initiative at (http://www.opensource.org)
QueueSocket was developed using REALbasic 4.5, but is backwards compatible
with little or no code revision, depending on the REALbasic version.
