TCP sockets in Pascal are generally hard to use; Free Pascal doesn't come with any high-level socket libraries by default, only a relatively low-level socket library. Some external libraries are available to make using sockets with Pascal easier, and one of these libraries is Synapse. Synapse is an easy-to-use socket library for Pascal, and in this blog post I'll try to show how to use Synapse to connect to a remote server and send/receive data from it.
Well, as you can see here, my blog has a new layout. The layout itself was written from scratch by me, although some parts of it were based off a nice two-column CSS layout tutorial I found whilst searching in Google. This layout is not yet complete, I'm still working on it. What do you think so far? :)
The only problem now is my lack of blog posts. I haven't really had time to blog, but I'll definitely try to write some more posts here soonish :P
