Hi There,

I am porting a MFC application to Linux, need evaluation for these functions on Linux:

WSACreateEvent();
WSACloseEvent(m_hWsaEvent);
WSAEventSelect (m_hSocket, m_hWsaEvent, lEvent);
WSAWaitForMultipleEvents(1, &m_hWsaEvent, FALSE, dwTimeOut, FALSE);
WSAEnumNetworkEvents (m_hSocket, m_hWsaEvent, &NetworkEvents);

which are used for EventSocket in application.

Thanks.

AFAIK there're no equivalents in Linux, you need different libs for events from network (see man socket and man bind) and for GUI (depends on your used GUI like KDE, Gnome, X11, etc.)

Hiya,

I am *rightnow* trying to do the opposite ;).

I need to port a networking application to windows.
Shall we collaborate?  My interest would be to write
a small (that is, much smaller than libACE) portable
library for event demultiplexing.

If you are interested then please send an email
to carlo @ alinoe. com

I want to be more specific about my application.
This is not a GUI application , it's a script based ui, and a last generator for sip message with 60,000 line code.

then simply socket(), bind() and accept() are your friends
