This package implements the System V poll(2) system call for Unix-like systems that do not support poll. For instance, the following Unix-like operating systems do not support poll: poll provides a method for multiplexing input and output on multiple open file descriptors; in traditional BSD systems, that capability is provided by select(2). While the semantics of select differ from those of poll, poll can be readily emulated in terms of select, which is exactly what this small piece of software does.
Brief documentation on this emulation can be found at the top of the
poll.h header file. Also, see the home page for more details.
