    5 What is SocketShr?
    6 ------------------
    7 
    8 SOCKETSHR is Eckhart Meyer's socket library interface to the MadGoat NETLIB
    9 package, which provides a vendor-independent interface to the VMS TCP/IP
   10 transports.  Using this, the same image will run over any of the available
   11 packages, including UCX, Multinet, CMU, Pathway access and TCPWARE.
   12 
   13 SocketShr and NETLIB are separately available libraries that MUST be installed
   14 before LYNX can use them.

   51     SOCKETSHR 		Point to the appropriate shareable image
   52     SOCKETSHR_LIBRARY	Point to the directory containing SOCKETSHR.H
   53     			and IOCTL.H
   54 
   55 Both should be defined /system /exec

   58 Building LYNX
   59 -------------
   60 
   61 Run the BUILD.COM procedures and select the SOCKETSHR_TCP option.  This will
