There's hardly any difference between Linux sockets and WINSOCK as far as
that example code goes.

Remove the WSAStartup/WSACleanup calls, change sprintf_s to sprintf,
WSAGetLastError() to errno, SOCKET to int and you should be done.  That's
the easy part.

The hard part is handling timeouts as the Prologix doesn't give any
indication if a ++read timed out.
