  if you're working with Allegro CL 5.0.1 Lite for Windows, you may want to
  visit and look at their support documentation.  according
  to these files, it includes the Allegro CL socket library.  I'm not sure
  the 5.0 Lite edition did.  if it didn't, grab the new version.  (if you
  use the Personal or Student edition of Allegro CL, these do not contain
  the socket library.)

  there should be documentation coming with your CD or download that
  explains this in detail.  look for doc/cl/socket.htm in your Allegro CL
  installation directory.  it contains all you need to know, including
  descriptions of all the functions involved and links to their pages.
