Is there a system call named 'poll' in Digital Unix?
For example, in UnixWare 2.01 (SVR4.2) we have:

----- ["man 2 poll"] -----

       poll(2)                                                      poll(2)

       NAME
             poll - input/output multiplexing

       SYNOPSIS
             #include <stropts.h>
             #include <poll.h>
             int poll(struct pollfd *fds, unsigned long nfds, int timeout);

       DESCRIPTION
             poll provides users with a mechanism for multiplexing
             input/output over a set of file descriptors that reference
             open files.  poll identifies those files on which a user can
             send or receive messages, or on which certain events have
             occurred.

------ [end man poll]-------
Note: we do not want to hear about 'select' call!
