The ability to talk to the socloc server is contained with these socloc API's. Before trying to understand how the API's function (pun intended), you should make sure you understand the concept of socloc by reading the socloc overview.
Once this API locates a socloc server that is responding, this server is considered the current socloc server and all API function calls (with some exceptions) will be routed to this socloc server.
