The WebSocket Protocol Component API is designed for use by use by C/C++ programmers. Familiarity with HTTP and Windows networking is required.
The WebSocket Protocol Component API requires Windows 8 and later versions of the Windows operating system. The APIs can be dynamically linked through websocket.dll.
websocket.dll provides support for client and server handshake related HTTP headers, verifies received handshake data, and parses the WebSocket data stream. It does not handle any HTTP-specific operations (redirection, authentication, proxy support) nor perform any I/O operations (sending or receiving WebSocket stream bytes).
