I have a pre-existing cocoa application that that receives serial data and stores those separate values in a dictionary as key/value pairs. I need to take that stored serial data, and package it as something the client (not a cocoa app, c++) can grab out over a closed network. Ive read up up using sockets, and have been told that is the best way to do this. I am a beginner at programming and have no idea where to start. any suggestions?
