The select package
While tinkering on a project, I frequently found myself having to make FFI calls to select(2). This package provides an interface to that system call.
Changed in version 0.4.0.1:
Minor internal cleanups.
TODO moved to file.
Changes in version 0.4:
Introduce an interface to fd_set.
Add functions with various amounts of abstraction; in particular, select'' matches select in previous versions.
Retry select(2) in case of interruption by signals.
Remove dependence on the vector package.
Behavior with write and exception file descriptors is under-tested. Feedback is welcome.
This package is far from complete, and should be tested throughly before being relied upon.
NOTE: I feel I'm occupying prime namespace realestate with a package name like select. I'll happily let myself be chased away if someone more qualified wants to use this package name. Let me know.
