Subject Re: The lack of poll()
Date Thu, 10 Jun 1999 19:33:39 GMT

I am actually in the middle of writing the network code for APR on
Windows.  Windows also does not have poll, which is why I am responding to
this message.  I have an ap_poll implementation using select already
written.  When I finish the code on Windows, I will move the function over
to Unix and #ifdef it.  When Apache-2.0 is synch'ed for the last time, and
we can put apr under it, this problem goes away.

Any problem with that solution?
