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. It also used to expose an STM interface for running select(2) with alternative STM actions, but that functionality was split into the stm-orelse-io package from version 0.3.
Changes in version 0.3:
Split all STM-related functionality into a separate package, stm-orelse-io, independent of select.
Provide a type for fd_set that can be passed to and from C so that we can have a version of System.Posix.IO.select that reports which file descriptors are ready, instead of how many. Its type will be something like [Fd] -> [Fd] -> [Fd] -> Timeout -> IO ([Fd], [Fd], [Fd]).
NOTE: I feel I'm occupying prime namespace realestate with a package name like select. I'll happily let myself be chased away if anybody else wants to use this package name. Let me know.
