|Do plugins need to call WSAStartup()? It would seem not, since I can call winsock functions without it. Can I rely on that?
|I certainly wouldn't rely on it. TCC doesn't call WSAStartup, so if you want to use an API that needs it, you'll have to do it yourself.
Hmmm! I have a plugin which successfully calls gethostbyname() without first
calling WSAStartup(). Could it be that IPWorks is starting up Winsock (and
leaving it started)?
