I was trying to make a socket program,in which i was able to connect to server and send message but the part that i would was not able to do is:-
Make an event which will be set if something is written on the socket through which i have connected to the socket and when the event i have to make the recv() call.
And if i didn't get any response from the server i should make the send call again after 5 second.
How can it be done.
Please suggest

Use select() on a separate thread to wait for data (you can also set a timeout value).
Then call recv() to read the data. If timeout occurs, (re)send data to your server.
