Im looking for a network library for c++ cos Im planning to write a small network application. something along the lines of a port scanner.

I would be interested in knowing which library most people use and what is recommended.

Sounds very specific requirement. Donno if some free (of cost) library available for this. May be there is some licensed one.

Maybe something like this, though I am not very sure.

Nah, I think Curl is a bit too limited for the OP's purposes. Curl was built more for file transfer, not port scanning.

Can't think of much, however at least look for something that's C++ based, such as this wrapper for the C berkeley sockets:

thanks for all your replies guys. I looked into curl but it was application level and I require something a little low level.

I checked out the wrapper for berkeley sockets and i think i'll go with this or something like this...
