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.
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.
Return the error code specified by errno if select fails.
Possibly move the select retry code from C to Haskell.
Reorder functions to make the documentation more logical.
Use hsc2hs's #const to get preprocessor constants (removes some of FdSet's cbits.c).
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.
