Hi Guys,
 
How can I tell if a socket is blocking or non-blocking in C++ and in windows API?

Depends on how you used the socket.
When it is blocking, the execution of the current thread stays in the "usage-function" of that socket until that function returns. Or, your program is "blocked" until the socket-operation finishes.
When it is not blocking, it begins parallely with the execution of the socket-functionality you called while your current thread continues to run.

Ok, let me rephrase my question. I have a handle to a socket (in C++), and I want to check if it's blocking or not.
I know how to set it: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms738573(VS.85).aspx
But I need to get this property.
