In Unix, we can select on both tcp and pipe using fd. But in NT, select will return an error message (WSAENOTSOCK) is I select on pipe. I need to check both a socket and a pipe which communicates between the main program and a console. I can't check one by one, because select will spend a certain time (timeout). How can I do it without any delay? Thanks a lot.

This is usually doe using APCs (asynchronous procedure calls) - see http://www.mvps.org/win32/network/sockhim.html on how to do that with sockets, and a sample program for named pipes (though is tuses MFC) at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnpic/html/msdn_servrapp.asp
