Subject Questions about apr_poll
Date Tue, 05 Jan 2010 08:16:37 GMT
(1) The documentation for apr_pollset_create() states that the "size"
parameter controls "The maximum number of descriptors that this
pollset can hold." However, ancient history like
http://www.mail-archive.com/dev@apr.apache.org/msg12876.html suggests
that "size" now just controls the # of events that can be signalled by
a single call to apr_pollset_poll().

>From glancing at the code, it seems that the select provider has a
fixed limit on the pollset size, but kqueue, epoll and event port do
not, for example. Is that accurate? Perhaps the apr_pollset
documentation can be updated accordingly.

(2) Is there a reason why apr_pollset_wakeup() was added, but there's
no analogous apr_pollcb_wakeup()?

Speaking of which, it might be good to document the high-level
differences between apr_pollset and apr_pollcb -- without doing some
digging, it is not at all clear how they differ, or why one might
prefer one over the other.

Thanks in advance for any advice,
