By using the WSAxxx socket function and the Overlapped Socket IO, you can have the WSAxxx functions call functions of your choice when events you are interested in happen.

The Windows message based scheme is actually built on top of this overlapped function call framework and it just sends windows messages when the functions get called.

Basically, any class derived from CCmdTarget is a candidate for having its own message pump, and with the availability of 'CSocket::OnMessagePending', override this member function to look for particular messages from Windows and respond to them in your socket.
