It’s always useful to have more introductory material.

My (biased) viewpoint is that the “Network Socket Examples” section has
the important thing because after all, changing these examples to use
Unix-domain sockets instead of TCP should be a simple exercise for the
reader.  ;-)

What would you add to that section?

The glibc manual has additional examples to datagram sockets, among
other things.  Perhaps that should be an inspiration?
