You could have a look at the man pages for ioctl(). This system call enables
(simple) asynchronous io. If a stream has its FIOASYNC attribute set, the
process is signaled (by means of a SIGIO signal) when io can be performed
on  a stream.

On top of simple scenario, you could add threads (have a look at the pthread
man pages), where one thread takes care of the io stuff, while the other(s)
continue doing whatever they have to do ...

kind regards,
