Yeah, I didn't like the issock stuff either, but the fundamental reason for it being there makes it hard to avoid without having an abstraction on top of the stdio FILE stuff. If we were to nuke it completely and be able to use regular files and sockets without special consideration, we would need to have our own set of stdio compatible functions. Do we want to go down that path? I will look into it, and the hostconnect call that I somehow managed to miss while looking at the fsockopen call... --Wez.
