README file for adasockets.

AdaSockets is a medium binding (it is not a thin binding because it uses Ada types and not a thick binding because you have the same subprogram names as in C) for using BSD-style sockets in Ada.

Since the original release, I have been adding multicast and fixed some bugs. However, it is likely that others remain.

To use AdaSockets with gnatmake once installed, type:

% gnatmake adasockets-config ...

The adasockets-config part will add the correct options to gnatmake command line.
