What do you mean by socket types and socket domains? Give use a little more detail about what you are looking for and why.

in function int socket(int domain, int type, int protocol);
I need more information about each domain and type which defined in "/usr/include/bits/socket.h" - > There about 30 different protocol families(PF) and very poor comments for each.

Where i can find information(or documentation) about PF(AF) , and "new" socket types such as SOCK_DCCP , SOCK_SEQPACKET, SOCK_RDM...

Get Comer and Stevens "Internetworking With TCP/IP", published by Prentice-Hall. It's a costly 3 volume set, but covers all this stuff, and if you are serious about TCP/IP socket programming, these are required reading.
