I'll second NETLIB; it really makes the code a lot simpler if you

What Absolute & Complete Bollocks!
TCPWare, Multinet, & UCX, all accept the *same* $QIO calls. Process Software
have been at pains to maintain/introduce conformity across the IP Stacks,
and the _BG: driver interface specifically.
If you can't handle $QIO then stop programming and take up real estate.
(Sage advice for us all)
NETLIB is a superfluous layer of abstraction that I'm sure even Hunter would
acknowledge belongs to yesteryear along with most here :-(
