Glossary:Asynchronous Detection

Detection of the state of an item at any time, requiring asynchronous capabilities in an operating system. The Windows Socket (WinSock) dynamic-link library (DLL) detects a socket state at any time, and notifies the application of the current state.

Important
WinSock is an Application Programming Interface (API) for developing Windows applications. Windows operating systems include the winsock.dll file, which implements the API and acts as the “glue” between Windows programs and TCP/IP connections.
