Excellent!! ( Had to start somewhere :-) )

Is defining the call back like defining the name space for the socket?

In realbasic I would do something like this where kjtlTCPCommander is a
socket subclass
which handles all the read and write functions.

  TCPCommander = new kjtlTCPCommander
  TCPCommander.Address = Address
  TCPCommander.Port = Port
  if TCPCommander.Run( Command, Message ) then
    AdviseResult( 0, Verbose, Message )
    AdviseResult( 1, Verbose, Message )
  end if

How do you access the socket object?
