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
