How to select TCP and pipe in NT

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
