Changelog of Network.DLL.


   Fixed a "debug assertion failed" error, when sending something, without
       having specified a separator.


   Renamed all functions related to "seperator" to "separator".


   Changed the about text in NET_About().
   Changed some error codes, as they differed from the same, defined elsewhere.
   Added NET_SendGraph(), NET_RecvGraph(), NET_SendFile() and NET_RecvFile().
   Added the optional parameter includeseparator to NET_Send(). When it is not
       0, the connection's separator will be added at the end of the to be sent
       data. When it is 0, it won't.
   Made messages unlimited. because in v1.5x this was more easy. NET_RECV()
       still has a limit of NET_MAX_MSG_LEN, but this is not a low number, so
       all should be well. If it's required, it is still possible to make that
       one unlimited as well.
   Added NET_IntToIP() and NET_IPToInt(),which were previously made in Fenix
   Added errormessages for the new errorcodes in NET_GetError().
   Added NET_SeparatorLength();
   Fixed if other peer closes, this side does not notice until it tries to send
       a message.
   Moved the parameter includeseparator from NET_Separator() to NET_Recv() and


   Added comments, tidied up the code a little.
   Added and changed some console messages.
   Added the possibility of removing separators.
   Added NET_DisconnectAll() and its synonym NET_CloseAll().
   Added NET_IntVersion().


   Working. Celebrate!


   Added/Fixed/Changed a lot of things, after half a year, in order to achieve
       working status again (I lost the sourcecode of v1.15 and up, due to a
       format). Some things might still not be completely in working order, but
       that will be sorted out as well in the future.


   Fixed bug causing to send only to first 255 connections with
   Changed Fenix NET_MessageRN()'s name to NET_MessageRN2().

   Added Global Vars NET.ActiveConnections and NET.ActiveListenConnections.
   Changed consolereports and returnnetdllcommands to pointers.
   Added NET_Hostname().
   Added NET_Port().
   Added NET_Resolve().
   Added a check in NET_Disconnect() and NET_Accept() if
   (dis)connecting/disconnected hostname was found.
   Added NET_DUMInit().
   Added various global variables for the DU Meter.
   Fixed some messaging functions not returning errorcodes.
   From now on the version will be 1.xx.


   Added listenport to be optional ( 0<=listenport<=65535 is valid; 0 means
   undefined ).
   Changed NET_Listen() to be accessible from Fenix.
   Added in- and outMessageStacks.
   Added Message IDs and Message Codes.
   Changed hello-hallo bounce to be in opposite direction.

   Fixed previous messages traces in current message.
   Added errorcodes.
   Added NET_Message2() and NET_Message3().
   Fixed NET_Quit() now also kills the NET_Run().
   Added NET_Run() as part of the NET_Init().
   Changed name from NET.DLL to Network.DLL to avoid confusion.


   Fixed some bugs and recoded parts of the core.
   Fixed message losses.
   Added the parameter <pingtimeout> to NET_Init().

v0.10: Released the DLL.

   Changed NET_Init() to NET_DLLInit().


   Made NET_Init() return an error if the maximum number of connections is


   Added defines, made the returns return them and made more error checks.


   Added Global Status Identifier


   Improved Autodisconnect to first send a PING and only disconnect when PONG
       is not received. This will be improved to the PING and PONG having an
       identifier. This is to assure the PONG received is consequence of the
       PING, otherwise when last message is PONG and the other computer
       disconnects, the PONG message will be received over and over and it
       will not be disconnected.


   removed bug: couldn't send more than 3 messages using NET_Message, though
       NET_Send() worked fine. Fixed it by letting NET_Send return 0.

v0.01- v0.04:

   Created main functions and so on.
