This chapter provides reference entries for the functions in the
COMM package provides the TCP/IP interface. TCP/IP sockets can be used to communicate between processes and machines and the mechanism allows LispWorks to connect to or implement a server. It also allows using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) processing in the socket.
