A socket question

  I am not really familiar with sockets.

  However I succeeded in creating a server and client. The client 
requests a file that is sent by the server (the contents). On Linux, I 
could use MSG_WAITALL option for recv to get all the data.

  Trying this on windows failed because it is not in the socket module 
there. I am using 2.1 btw.

  Can anyone show me how to do this in any way. I really am not familiar 
with sockets though. I "know" that one could use select or something but 
I have no clue how.

  A simple example for transfering any amount of data in one shot would 
be nice.
