Start looking for the answers to your questions. This is exactly the same as your "What is an algorithm?" question.

http://www.allapi.net is a great website providing examples and everything. Basically I think of an API as a system function (usually if not always contained in a .DLL file) that allows you to do it....

i hate to be an [censored] about this and i know this is a clever post but what the hell do you want with a homer simpson head form if you do not know how to use winsock controls?

maybe im just an ignorant dick for not acknowledging that you wish to learn how to code in vb but i strongly suggest you learn to write a simple client / server app with some winsock [censored] in order to grasp what you are confronting, nevertheless it is simple enough to do.

in other words, homer simpson like looking apps are no good when you cannot write the working code for it, forget API and move onto simple inbred stuff rather than the ADVANCED Programming Interface!


The use of "hacker" to mean "security breaker" is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean, "Someone who loves to program and enjoys being clever about it."
