libsocket - sockets library
Historically, this library provided the socket internetworking, primarily used with the TCP/IP protocol suite. This functionality now resides in libc(3LIB).
This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is implemented as a filter on libc.so.1. New application development does not need to specify –lsocket.
