This is the new networking layer for Node. Its purpose is to abstract
IOCP on windows and libev on Unix systems. We intend to eventually contain
all platform differences in this library.

= Build Instructions

For GCC (including MinGW) there are two methods building: via normal
makefiles or via GYP. GYP is a meta-build system which can generate MSVS,
Makefile, and XCode backends. It is best used for integration into other
projects.  The old (more stable) system is using Makefiles.

To build via Makefile simply execute:


To build with Visual Studio run the create-msvs-files.bat file which will
checkout the GYP code into build/gyp and generate the build/all.sln and
related files.

To have GYP generate build script for another system you will need to
checkout GYP into the project tree manually:

    svn co build/gyp

Unix users run

    ./gyp_uv -f make

Macintosh users run

    ./gyp_uv -f xcode
    xcodebuild -project uv.xcodeproj -configuration Release -target All

= Supported Platforms

Microsoft Windows operating systems since Windows XP SP2. It can be built
with either Visual Studio or MinGW.
