Franklin, MA (PRWEB) December 18, 2007
Riverace Corporation has released its new white paper, "How to Avoid the Top Ten Sockets Programming Errors: A White Paper for Software Development Managers." The white paper is available for immediate download at http://www.riverace.com/sockets10.htm.
Written specifically for senior software developers and managers, the "How to Avoid the Top Ten Sockets Programming Errors" white paper explains in detail the ten most common sockets programming errors, including Winsock, Unix, Linux, and TCP/IP, and then shows how developers can avoid them.
"Developing software is a costly endeavor," says Steve Huston, President of Riverace, "and most of the development cost is in the testing and maintenance stages. This is because developers can't catch sockets programming errors as they occur -- the traditional tools and techniques introduce too much accidental complexity. It's too easy for developers to do the wrong thing and the API (application program interface) is too complicated. With the developers we work with, we kept seeing the same socket programming problems repeatedly, so we developed this white paper to show them how to avoid these errors."
Although the white paper is written for technical users, the content is reader-friendly and includes a quiz that developers can take to see if they can find the top ten sockets programming errors in a function. Readers will also learn how to develop error-free functions that use fewer lines of code and how to correct errors in seconds during compile -- versus hours or days at run-time.
Readers will also be able to download -- at no cost -- ACE source code via a link in the white paper. The white paper can be found at http://www.riverace.com/sockets10.htm.
